The Future of Families in Downtown – A Royer Roundtable Event
Residential development is booming in Downtown Seattle. There are cranes dotting the skyline and high-rise living options sprouting up throughout Downtown’s 12 neighborhoods, a trend that very well should continue given the upcoming development of Amazon’s headquarters and the arrival of other new employers and retailers Downtown.
In short, more residents and more families will be looking to Downtown as their preferred location to live, whether solo or to raise a family. To that end, the Downtown Seattle Association and Gallatin Public Affairs want to discuss what’s ahead for families in Downtown at the first Royer Roundtable of the year, “The Future of Families in Downtown Seattle” on February, February 5 from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at Cutters Crabhouse, located at 2001 Western Avenue.
There a number of efforts underway to make Downtown more family-friendly, such as locating a public school Downtown, adding a new playground at Westlake Park and seasonal campaigns designed to appeal to families and children. The panelists for the Royer Roundtable, Kate Joncas of DSA, Sarah Snider of LMN Architects and Jen Kelly of Via Architecture will discuss those elements and other opportunities to make Downtown more family-friendly, what other cities are doing and how the family fits into the overall strategy for a healthy Downtown.
