You’ve likely seen our coverage on changes to Uptown, with the potential for some areas to see new developments soaring to 16 stories. The Uptown rezone brings up the issue of preservation – how can Uptown continue to grow while preserving its historic character?
That issue is at the center of this week’s Queen Anne Historical Society public meeting, this Thursday, October 27th. All are welcome to join QAHS members and four special guests to discuss what Preserving Uptown means.
The meeting starts at 7pm at Aegis Living at 2900 3rd Ave W, and it’s open to anyone with an interest in the proposed rezone and the character of Uptown/Lower Queen Anne.
Join the conversation with these guest speakers:
- Jim Holmes, Seattle City Planner and Uptown planning lead
- Debi Frausto, Uptown Alliance’s chair of the Uptown Urban Design Framework
- Katherine Idzoriek, architect and President of the Uptown Alliance
- Jill Crary, Seattle Center Redevelopment
Parking is available on 3rd Ave W in front of the building and in the garage, entrance off W. Florentia. For garage access, use the intercom, and please sign in upon arrival.
