Partner and Board Chair Candace Damon discusses the transformation of Seattle’s waterfront into a major park on KUOW
HR&A Advisors Partner & Board Chair Candace Damon sat down with Joshua McNichols of KUOW for a conversation on the transformation of Seattle’s waterfront into a major park and HR&A Advisors’ work supporting the City of Seattle and the Friends of Waterfront Seattle to create a vital public resource that connects to downtown. Candace discusses how looking to Brooklyn Bridge Park, which shares many similarities with Seattle’s waterfront, can provide insights into successful strategies and the lasting economic impact these public realm investments can create.
With many office buildings vacant, the Seattle waterfront transformation holds the promise of revitalizing downtown Seattle. However, one key issue was bridging the gap, both physical and mental, between downtown and the waterfront.
