Rezoning Plan Released For SLU

Monday evening, Seattle officials released their plans for rezoning in the South lake Union area, with the anticipation for the influx of residents and workers coming to the area. The plan estimated 12,000 people moving to the neighborhood with over 22,000 jobs over the next ten years provided by amazon and other local companies.

The proposal includes an array of requirements listed below but not limited to:

  • Increasing the current building height restrictions
  • Preserving the current Cascade Neighborhood (one of the oldest in Seattle) and creating a new residential community along 8th Ave North of Denny Park
  • Establishing new development standards to ensure new towers are spaced to preserve public views through the neighborhood
  • Strengthening incentives to preserve landmark properties and existing open spaces
  • Creating a new incentive to build a new public school to serve the city center
