Riverfront West

The Riverfront Small Area Plan consists of two sites with a total of approximately 5.5 acres. The first site is a 2.5-acre study area located southeast of the downtown core and bounded by 4th St SE to the south, S Broadway to the west, 2nd St SE to the south, and 3rd Ave SE to the east. The 3-acre parking lot and attached parcel north of 4th Street SE and east of 3rd Ave SE will also be included in the study. The site is located at the intersection of the Arts and Culture District and Main Street Mixed-Use District in the Downtown Master Plan, and it is located in the Waterfront Sub-District of the DMC Development Plan. The current use is primarily public parking, including surface lots and a four-story parking garage. On the south end of the site is a vacant building   In order to proactively guide change, an inclusive engagement process with property owners, residents, and other stakeholders will result in a plan for the area that will help guide a transformation from its current state to a mixed-use neighborhood with its own character yet connected to the surrounding neighborhoods.
