Market to MOHAI

Office and residential buildings are going up fast around the Belltown, Denny Triangle and South Lake Union neighborhoods. How will the anticipated additional wave of workers and residents negotiate already congested local streets? The Market to MOHAI (Museum of History and Industry) project will create high-quality pedestrian corridors that encourage travel by foot. Stretching from the Central Waterfront and Pike Place Market to Lake Union Park and MOHAI, the corridor will create safe, well-lit and well-marked routes serving pedestrians as they commute to work, shop and have fun. DSA is shaping the direction of Market to MOHAI through design consultation, public engagement, discussions with elected officials and expert guidance on creating a vibrant, exciting public corridor.
