Project Summary

Toole Design’s collaborative approach to engineering and urban design allowed us to provide uniquely responsive streetscape concepts for the redesign of Pike and Pine Streets in the heart of downtown Seattle. Our multidisciplinary team developed concurrent plans supporting two separate project phases: the first phase included rapid implementation of safety features, while the second phase envisions a more extensive streetscape transformation to improve aesthetics and the overall user experience.

The first phase of the Pike/Pine projects has introduced interim protected bike lanes in the core of the downtown Pike/Pine corridor.  Additionally, the first phase added nearly 4,000 square feet of new public space to the heart of the city.

The second phase is looking at longer-term revisions that will make the corridor an even better place to work, shop, relax, and experience all of the energy and vitality of an active urban center.  This phase is developing concepts for improving sidewalks, transit stops, bikeways, and all of the details of the urban environment that contribute to an inviting and positive public space.
