Preservation-minded panel looks at Pike/Pine development — then & now

It’s the year of the neighborhood for city officials and the Seattle think tanks dedicated to making this heart of the Puget Sound a better place to live. The Seattle Architecture Foundation is mounting a series of neighborhood forums around the city — Tuesday night, the group takes on Capitol Hill:

Capitol Hill prides itself on proximity to downtown while boasting a mix of uses almost absent from the neighboring business district. New mixed-use projects compete with the architectural soul of the neighborhood, rooted in structures of the old ‘autorow’ and historic housing stock.

Guest Speakers:
Michael Oaksmith, Director of Development at Hunters Capital
Chuck Wolfe, Land Use Attorney, Writer, Blogger, Professor
Jeff Reibman, Principal, Weber Thompson
Michael Sullivan, Principal, Artifacts, Inc
Eugenia Woo, Director of Preservation Services at Historic Seattle

You can find out starting at 6:30 PM Tuesday (4/8) at the Broadway Performance Hall. Tickets are $15 for non-members. More information here.
