Communty Package Tour

The Urbanist’s tour series takes you to the hidden nooks and splendid neighborhoods across Seattle and the greater Puget Sound region. Join us with local experts to explore and learn about our built and natural environments.

For July we are partnering with the Community Package Coalition. They are a broad alliance of neighborhood organizations and nonprofit advocates seeking key public benefits from the Convention Center expansion, the largest real estate project in Seattle’s history. On this tour, the Coalition will lead us through most of the project locations, including First Hill’s Terry Avenue Promenade, Freeway Park, Pike-Pine protected bike lanes, and the Lid I-5 study area. They’ll also discuss affordable housing opportunities and the project’s proposed on-site benefits.

We’ll also be joined by UNITE HERE, the labor union representing hospitality workers, to discuss how the Convention Center affects the lives of local employees and residents.

We are offering two tour dates and times; the Saturday morning tour is the full experience, and the Friday night tour is a shorter option that will visit fewer project sites. Click one of the links below to register today!

When registering through Eventbrite, please consider a donation of $10 or more per person to support our nonprofit volunteer work. All of The Urbanist’s events and educational programs are free and open to the general public, and we appreciate your support!
