The WSCC Addition poses a once-in-a-generation opportunity to build a long-term positive legacy of improvements and connections in Seattle’s central neighborhoods.

The project’s size, central location, public ownership, and extensive request for public right-of-way is being leveraged to make bold investments in Seattle's future and support what we need most - public open spaces, safe crossings for people walking and biking, and affordable housing. Learn more about these community-identified projects that will be implemented in partnership with the WSCC.
