University Urban Center Village
NE 43rd St and 9th Ave NE
The Parks and Green Spaces Levy provides $24 million for the acquisition of neighborhood parks in up to 20 identified areas throughout the City. The University Urban Center Village was included in that list.
The University District, officially designated as University District Northwest in Seattleís Comprehensive Plan, is an emerging urban center expected to experience high residential and employment growth during the next 20 years.
Bordering on the University of Washington (UW) and encompassing several small residential areas, an active business district, and Safecoís corporate campus, the University District has a unique and diverse set of park, open space, and recreational needs.
While the community features a few excellent parks and the nearby UW includes attractive passive open space, the University Districtís 2.86 acres of open space falls 2.97 acres below the Comprehensive Planís open space goals. The projected increases of 2,000 new households and 2,640 jobs by 2024 mean that this deficit will grow to 5.27 acres unless additional parks and open space can be provided.
We would like to encourage neighbors and/or community groups to join together and support land acquisition in the University Urban Center Village.
