TOUR - Pike/Pine Tour: Change on an Urban Scale

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Tour begins on Capitol Hill, on the Seattle Central Community College Campus, outside the Broadway Performance Hall, 1625 Broadway.

This urban neighborhood is in the midst of a building boom, and some fear Pike/Pine’s unique character is under threat. From its beginnings as a quiet residential district to its time as Seattle’s first ‘Auto Row’ and its later role as the heart of the local LGBT community, Pike/Pine has always been defined by change. Its story is written in the buildings and streetscapes that help give the neighborhood its character. Can this character be preserved amidst all the new development? Decide for yourself as we explore the past, present, and future of one of Seattle’s most dynamic districts.

Parking can be found at the Seattle Central Community College parking lots and garages. The Harvard Garage is located at 1609 Harvard Avenue, Seattle, WA 98122. Any of the #10, 11 or 49 buses departing from the Downtown area, will be able to get you right outside Seattle Central Community College.

This tour involves moderate walking with minor hills/stairs and some maneuvering due to construction.  This cost of the tour is normally $15, but to make it accessible to all, a special FREE Design Festival Pass is available for this date.  Limited free tickets available, so please register in advance.
