Open house at Warren G. Magnuson Park
Opportunity to learn about current developments in the historic district

Seattle Parks and Recreation, the Magnuson Park Advisory Committee and Sand Point Arts & Cultural Exchange (SPACE) invite the community to an open house showcasing several new developments within Magnuson Park’s historic district on Tuesday, Jan.  21, 2014 from 5 to 7 p.m. The event takes place in the newly renovated Officer’s Club in Building 30. This is an opportunity for tenants, partners and the public to learn about the exciting developments taking place in the park.

Magnuson Park continues to evolve from a U.S. Navy base to an environmentally friendly campus housing diverse organizations. At this event the community can explore the recently renovated Building 30 and connect with park partners, tenants and friends.
Washington State Department of Commerce, Cascade Bicycle Club and the Seattle Waldorf High School are just a few of the organizations that are currently partnering with the park.  Projects include the creation of 200 units of workforce housing, a Cycling Center, a bicycle destination spot and a new high school.

Five buildings in the district have recently, or soon will be, undergoing significant changes and will be the focus of the event. S.M. Stemper Architects, Building 30 renovation architects, will share the challenges and strategies used in the preservation of Building 30, and Building 11’s new anchor tenants, the Waldorf High School and Cascade Bicycle Club, will share their plans and vision for their facilities.  Participants can also gather information on improvements and partners for Building 9, Building 18, Building 406 (The Brig) and Building 2.  4Culture will be on hand to share information about their Vets Restore program that offers training, mentoring and job placement guidance for returning veterans. 

For more information or questions about the event please contact Julianna Ross at 206-245-5457 or julianna.ross@gmail.com.  For more information about the park please visit http://www.seattle.gov/parks/Magnuson/.
