Greenwood Phinney Park Development

Review Status

On August 3, 2017, we reviewed the design development phase for the Greenwood Phinney Park Development. At this meeting we approved the design development phase with several recommendations.

Project Description

The project is one of 14 landbanked sites acquired by Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) to provide additional open space in neighborhoods throughout the city. At this time, the proposed park does not have an official name and will be referred to as the Greenwood Phinney Landbanked Site. The project site is located along Greenwood Ave N in the Greenwood Phinney Neighborhood. The site is located within a retail corridor (zoned Neighborhood Commercial 2) and is adjacent to lots zoned as single family. The original plan included development on one parcel located at the northeast corner of Greenwood Ave N and N 81st St. An updated plan includes an additional parcel, which is located north of the original parcel at the southeast corner of Greenwood Ave N and N 82nd St. While both parcels will be designed to concept level, only the south parcel has received full funding. The south parcel will be designed and constructed by the end of 2017, while the north parcel will be “lightly developed” to create a usable space. The north parcel will be fully developed once funding is secured.
