South Lake Union/Cascade Tour: Living With Cranes
Sat, Sep 12, 2015 at 10am - Sun, Sep 13, 2015 at 3:50am
Despite constant development and change in recent years, the South Lake Union/Cascade neighborhood supports a vibrant and growing community of residents and neighborhood businesses. This tour explores the architectural and urban design elements that contribute to a lively and livable Cascade, from "big picture" city contributions down to individual developer design decisions. With a focus on the neighborhood's residential architecture, green spaces serving as community spaces, and history as both a mixed-use neighborhood and urban wasteland, this tour delves into the question of what makes an urban neighborhood thrive. Join us for a discussion on the contributions of architecture as we observe current construction projects, long-standing and historic structures, and the overall transformation of this ever changing neighborhood! The tour will start at the REI Flagship store and also feature Art Stable, the Swale on Yale, Stackhouse, and Lake Union Park.
