Facts

  • Completed in August, 1994.
  • Harbor Steps is a major urban mixed-use development that incorporates retail, residential, hotel, and parking components. Callison's involvement included a study to establish an approach to the public street-level spaces within the area bounded by First Avenue, Alaskan Way, Pike Place Market and the old Federal Building in downtown Seattle. Goals for this multi-phased project included establishing the site as a focal point of the surrounding area, providing east/west linkages from the waterfront to the uplands/uptown neighborhoods to encourage traffic flow, creating a series of public spaces that take advantage of the expansive views of the site, and ensuring a strong water to land perspective. A series of landscaped terraces were developed to ease the steep 60 foot grade between First and Western Avenues, and to create a major public plaza within the Central Waterfront neighborhood at the intersection of Post Alley and University Street. Building massing forms were selected that frame and maintain the University Street view corridor with the architectural character that responds to the specific contextual and historic character of the through streets. Callison managed the efforts of the project team that included a design consultant, structural, mechanical, electrical and civil consultants. In addition, Callison worked closely with public groups, as well as the land use attorney and transportation planning team during the EIS process. (Written by Callison rep.
