CHS has been covering the multi-year process from the earliest days of brainstorming and design gatherings up through these last steps of formalizing the requirements Sound Transit will use in shaping its call for bidders on the properties surrounding the agency’s light rail station on Broadway between John and Denny. If approved, the agreement will put in place a framework requiring affordable housing and public amenities like a market square as part of the design guidelines.
