Great City is hosting several unique events Friday and Saturday that we really should have publicized earlier. On Friday the four finalist teams of ULI’s Gerald D. Hines Student Urban Design competition, which involved designing a TOD node around Link’s Mount Baker Station, will give their final presentations. Go here to see proposals from the four finalist teams.
Additionally on Saturday Great City is hosting three breakout sessions that will focus on the convergence of development and social equity, specifically in the context of Southeast Seattle. The full agenda is below the jump. Registration for Saturday is free but requested.
From Great Cities website:
CONVERSATIONS ABOUT GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT AND INEQUALITIES IN SEATTLE
Please join Great City and a roster of fantastic organizations on Friday, April 1 and Saturday, April 2 for the Equitable Growth Dialogues, a series of probing community conversations concerning regional growth, urban development and entrenched inequalities in Southeast Seattle. Through a series of focused, frank exchanges, the Equitable Growth Dialogues are intended to help build bridges between environmentalists, urbanists and social justice advocates. We believe that now more than ever these sometimes disparate constituencies need to find a shared agenda built on common interests and values. We invite you to participate as your schedule allows. Daycare, translation and lunch will be provided on April 2.
