Bassetti has been volunteering our time and expertise in collaboration with a number of different community organizations and partner design firms to develop an option for the Central Hills Triangle Collaborative (CHTC). The initiative is organized by Lid I-5 and the Pike/Pine Urban Neighborhood Council. We teamed with Seattle Public Schools, AHBL, Skanska, and HOK to develop a plan for the proposed connection between Downtown and Capitol Hill. Our goal is to create opportunities for the community to engage across what is now a split in the urban fabric – where the interstate passes through Seattle’s core. Funded by the City of Seattle’s Neighborhood Matching Fund, the CHTC is bringing together designers and community advocates to discover how we can bridge the freeway divide between some of our most vibrant and populous neighborhoods.
We are excited to see this community-wide effort continuing to move forward and would like to thank our partners and staff who have contributed a considerable amount of their time to this significant initiative in order to improve connections between neighborhoods and people in the city. We hope that everyone is inspired to support Lid I-5 as it progresses towards becoming a reality.
