Woonerf on its Way

*Woonerf is a Dutch term for a place where pedestrians and cyclists rule over automobiles, although all are part of the action.

Woonerf - 2011 Fall

James Court Park and Woonerf will provide new green space as this preliminary design illustrates.

An innovative approach to a new neighborhood gathering space is expected to be completed in late spring or early summer 2012.

Located next to the Douglas, a mixed-use building that will provide housing for Seattle University students and retail space, the James Court Park and Woonerf (between 12th and 13th avenues, south of Cherry Street) will be a blend of public right of way and park. The green space is made possible through a collaborative effort among numerous stakeholders, including SU, the Seneca Group (developers of the Douglas), 12th Avenue Stewardship Committee, Squire Park Community Council and Seattle Parks and Recreation
