We came across the Landing in Renton's new development of the Boeing properties south of Lake Washington--about a ten minute drive from our house. It has the potential for being a major southend hub connecting the new rapid transit station in Tukwila for downtown Seattle and the proposed commuter rail line for downtown Bellevue and beyond. Hope this is in the plans.
As you can see it was a very gray day, which the artificial Christmas tree behind its own white picket fence did little to cheer up.
Movie theatre, lots of places to lunch, structured parking, awnings--elements are in place for a new neighborhood. Will it have housing? Offices? Time will tell. It's pedestrian-oriented, but it does need a few more pedestrians...and maybe a puffbll or two.
