Waterfront – Overlook Walk

Review Status

On July 21, 2016, we reviewed proposed changes to the Overlook Walk concept design. At this meeting, we approved the amended concept design with several recommendations. We will review the project again at schematic design.

Project Description

The Overlook Walk is a signature element of the City's Office of the Waterfront proposal for the redesign of the waterfront following the removal of the Alaskan Way Viaduct. The walk is a series of walkways, stairs, plazas, and overlooks that provide a key connection between the waterfront and Pike Place Market. A series of plazas and public spaces line a wide pedestrian pathway and end at a grand staircase. The stairs orient towards Pier 62/63 and end at Aquarium Plaza, both elements of the proposed Central Public Open Space project. The Overlook Walk also includes two buildings that will be used for a variety of tenant spaces and arts and cultural facilities.
