Mt. Baker Station Area

What's Happening Now?

The Mount Baker Station Area has been the focus of several important planning processes in the past 10 years. Since the completion and operation of the Link Light Rail Station, there are recent pipeline private sector developments, and several significant public-sector capital investments slated for the area. There is an opportunity and need to create a stronger framework for intergovernmental collaboration. A collaborative effort focused on implementing the city's adopted plans and policies in the Mount Baker Station Area will help ensure maximum benefit from City Department's work efforts and investments. It will also guide and leverage other public and private investments to achieve overall community's vision in a cohesive, equitable and cost-effective way. We have created an interdepartmental Action Team to meet regularly, collaborate work and focus on implementation including development strategies in the Transit Oriented Development area. See the Project Charter here.

Transit Oriented Development

Accessible Mt Baker: The Accessible Mount Baker (AMB) project has laid out a bold plan to address this issue and transform the Mt. Baker station area into a livable, safe, and connected destination. This effort, led by Seattle Department of Transportation, will enhance safety and accessibility for everyone. It prioritizes the safety of people walking and biking through the area while enhancing transit and freight reliability and meeting vehicle demand. Implementation of the plan will potentially impact public and private properties and require strong partnerships, both for implementation of AMB and to realize the potential for property redevelopment that can achieve the transit oriented town center goals.

Get Involved

Feedback from the community is needed in order to guide our implementation efforts and create effective development strategies that will help ensure that the community's vision and priorities, as reflected in adopted plans and policies, are implemented in an effective and equitable way.

Project Timeline

The project will support the groundwork, agreement and partnership needed to complete design and funding for Accessible Mt Baker construction, utility strategies, open space acquisition, and overall economic development to implement community goal and priorities. The estimated timeline is five years, beginning in late 2017.
