Yesler Crescent Study

Updated: February 4, 2021

Early 2021

The Yesler Crescent Study builds from the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), Public Life Action Plan. The design study includes a collection of public spaces in Pioneer Square, including City Hall Park (downtown Seattle's second largest green space), Prefontaine Place (a key entrance to the Sound Transit Pioneer Square light rail station), and portion of 3rd Avenue.

This design study will be in collaboration with the Pioneer Square NE Framework Plan and will include a series of public outreach events in 2021 for feedback. The study includes 2 phases. Phase 1 will be implemented and is funded from REET for $200,000 and King County Levy funding for $164,000. Phase 2 is a visioning study that is funded through design development.
