Capitol Hill Station Sites Planning
Sound Transit received several responses to their request for qualifications for their property near the corner of Denny and Broadway that was issued in January. Subsequently, they released the list of development teams that they selected to respond to their request for proposals that will be released shortly. The selected teams presented their qualifications to the Capitol Hill community in early June. Over 300 people attended to hear from the teams. More information about the selected teams and the introductory event can be found at the Capitol Hill Champion’s website.
