Steinbrueck Park

Review Status

On April 21, 2016, we were briefed on options to establish a connection from Steinbrueck Park to the Overlook Walk. At this meeting, we endorsed to idea of providing a connection, while preserving the design intent of Steinbrueck Park.

Project Description

In 2012, the City Council adopted Resolution 31399 in support of the redevelopment of the Seattle Waterfront, as part of removal of WSDOT’s Highway 99 Viaduct. As part of the Council’s resolution, we anticipate to evaluate how Steinbrueck Park will connect with the adjacent Market Entrance and Overlook Walk.

Concurrent with this work, Seattle Parks and Recreation included proposed updates to Victor Steinbrueck Park, which were identified in the 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy. Because Steinbrueck Park is located within the Pike Place Market’s historic district, we will not review the updates proposed to the park. Park updates are subject to the Pike Place Market’s historic commission, who will approve the issuance of a Certificate of Approval. Rather, we will focus our review on the role of the park in making connections to the proposed Overlook Walk and related Seattle Waterfront improvements.
