Overlook Walk and East-West Connection Project
Seattle City Council’s Select Budget Committee

November 10, 2016   9:30 a.m.
City Council Chambers, 2nd Floor, City Hall, 600 4th Avenue, Seattle

The Seattle City Council’s Select Budget Committee will hold a public hearing regarding proposed legislation that would adopt a Capital Improvement Project related to the City’s waterfront improvement program. The Overlook Walk is an element of the City’s Office of the Waterfront proposal for the redesign of the waterfront following the removal of the Alaskan Way Viaduct. The walk is a series of walkways, stairs, plazas, and overlooks that provide a connection between the waterfront and Pike Place Market. A series of plazas and public spaces line a wide pedestrian pathway and end at a grand staircase. The stairs orient towards Pier 62/63 and end at Aquarium Plaza, both elements of the proposed Central Public Open Space project. The Overlook Walk also includes two buildings that will be used for a variety of tenant spaces and arts and cultural facilities.  The specific east/west streets targeted for improved connections includes: Bell Street, Union Street, Pike Street, Pine Street, Main Street, Washington Street, and Railroad Way. In addition, the creation of a new Overlook Walk will provide a pedestrian-oriented connection between the waterfront, the Aquarium, and Pike Place Market with ADA access, views, and public open spaces. This public hearing is required by Section 5 of Resolution 31203, adopted by the City Council in 2010.
