Event description

Description

Join The Urbanist and AIA Seattle's Urban Design Forum for a visit to the changing structural landscape of Seattle's historically African-American community, the Central Area. We'll be guided by Donald King, FAIA, Principal Architect at Mimar Studio, who is deeply familiar with this rapidly gentrifying neighborhood and the impacts of physical and cultural displacement on longtime residents. The tour will include a comparative analysis of Vulcan Real Estate's proposed 23rd and Jackson development and the upcoming Africatown MidTown Center development.

When registering, please consider a donation of $10 or more per person to support The Urbanist's educational mission. We are an all-volunteer nonprofit organization and our programming is free and open to the public.

Walking distance: 0.5 mile

Transit: This tour includes a ride on Metro route #48. Regular fare is $2.50 with exact change or an ORCA card.

Meeting location: We'll meet outside the north entry of Washington Middle School, near the Pan-African crosswalk on South Jackson Street.
