Promenade 23 Redevelopment Workshop

The new(ish) owner of the Promenade 23 has begun exploring the redevelopment of the southeast corner of Jackson and 23rd. This process could take years given the economy… but they have been meeting with community folks to start laying the groundwork of community involvement.

The Colman Neighborhood Association would like to invite our neighbors to a community workshop to gather feedback and community ideas for the developer and on how to leverage this potential redevelopment to encourage more businesses along Jackson Street and city investment in the corridor.

We are hosting two identical workshops at the Douglas Truth Library. No need to go to both!

Monday, April 16: 6:00-7:45

Tuesday, April 17: 1:00-2:45

We will also be posting an online survey on Monday for folks who can’t make either of these meeting and will share that on the CD News.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at [email protected].

  1. I hope it’s a true redevelopment, not just window dressing. My #1 request would be to have direct sidewalk access to all businesses on the property, rather than having to walk half a block across a parking lot. That doesn’t mean no parking, just put it behind, below or above the buildings. It’s much more attractive that way, and makes the neighborhood feel more walkable and livable. For examples, see the Metropolitan Market in Queen Anne (1st & Mercer), the QFC on Broadway and Pike, or the Safeway at 23rd and Madison. I’m not an architect, and I don’t live in those neighborhoods, so those shopping centers may have their own problems, but they’re all huge improvements over what we have here.
