Beacon Hill Neighborhood and Station Area Planning and Community Charrette

Location: Seattle, WA
Client: City of Seattle

As part of a planned citywide update of neighborhood plans, the City of Seattle organized a design charrette to explore future development around its light rail transit system and station areas. Otak’s architecture team prepared materials for the charrette, which included 3-D models showing existing building massing allowed by zoning code, as well as potential future building massing of transit-oriented development at increasing levels. Otak helped facilitate the charrette discussion to foster stakeholder, design-level ideas. Following the charrette, Otak prepared an informational document that summarized the current zoning and land use plans, and included projected images of future development.
