March Open House and Meeting Poster

To better serve a diverse and rapidly growing community, Seattle Parks and Recreation will open a new community center in the South Lake Union neighborhood that we are currently calling the South Lake Union Community Center. It will be a private-public partnership project as the Community Center will be located within a private development project but operated by Seattle Parks and Recreation.

The new facility will house spaces for activities such as fitness, art, and rooms for classes and events as well as a childcare service for young families.

Location

 Corner of Mercer Street and Dexter Avenue North

Budget

The planning, design and interior buildout of the community center space is estimated to cost $9-$12M; planning and design are funded, construction funding has not yet been identified.

Schedule

Analysis/Preliminary Design: December 2020 - February 2021
