Allowing more office towers won't make U District vibrant, livable community, says Doug Campbell on January 20, 2017.

Choose Public Space

We have the once in a lifetime opportunity to create a public square near our light rail station in the heart of the University District.

This square will be well managed and delightfully furnished with sculptures and murals, and surrounded by trees and benches. It will become a center for events involving our diverse arts and culture, including music, farmers markets, or simply meeting for a night on the town with your friends. 

For now, the project is just beginning. If you’d like to receive updates concerning our progress via our monthly email newsletter, please subscribe.
