Capitol Hill Housing Annual Meeting! – UPDATED

Friday, April 10th, 2009

Notes from this gathering can be found on Capitol Hill Seattle and the SLOG.


Capitol Hill Housing invites you to our annual meeting, and a panel discussion on the future of 12th Avenue.

12th Avenue is quickly becoming an active commercial spine for Capitol Hill and the Central Area with its new growth in restaurants, arts, and residential spaces. The corridor has enormous growth potential in the coming years. What uses do we want to preserve and attract to the business district as it grows? How will transit, diversity, and the arts play a role in the future?

This lively Panel will be made up of community members, property owners, developers, institutional leaders, and arts representatives. C.R. Douglas, veteran Seattle reporter, and host of City Inside/Out, will moderate.

Confirmed Panelists:
Michael Kiloren, Director; Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs
Liz Dunn, Pike/Pine Property Owner and Developer, Director; The National Trust for Historic Preservation Green Lab
Elizabeth Linke, Property Owner; Northwest Film Forum and 1621 12th Ave. Buildings
Kate Stineback, Housing & Community Developer; 12th Avenue Initiative, Capitol Hill Housing
Michael Kerns, Associate Vice President for Facilities; Seattle University
Tenaya Wright, President; Squire Park Community Council

SU Admissions & Alumni Building

Seattle University has begun construction on their new Admissions and Alumni Building on 12th and E Marion. While this will definitely be an administrative building, we are happy to hear that “the building will feature attractive gallery space along 12th Avenue and meeting space which will be open for general campus and community use.” Usually, community members must go deep into the SU campus to access community space; and it is always good to see institutions taking steps to enliven office buildings at night. The rendering above is by James Cary, Architect. Additionally, the project will be SU’s first LEED Gold certified.
