Construction contract awarded for Urban Triangle Park in South Lake Union neighborhood

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) announced the construction contract for Urban Triangle Park, a new park in South Lake Union, located at 2100 Westlake Ave has been awarded to MidMountain Contractors, Inc.  They will begin construction soon and anticipate completion of the park by early summer 2019.

On December 31, 2008, SPR purchased the 8,722-square-foot property at 2100 Westlake Ave. for a new neighborhood park in the Denny Triangle Urban Center Village. SPR allocated funding to complete the design phase early in 2014 to ensure a seamless and coordinated design with the adjacent properties. Together with the community and the landscape architecture firm Site Workshop, the design was completed. The new park will include an open lawn, a central play structure, lighting, ADA access, places for vendors, landscaping, and other park elements.

This park project is made possible by the voter-approved Seattle Park District, which provides more than $47 million a year in long-term funding for SPR, including maintenance of parklands and facilities, operation of community centers and recreation programs, and development of new neighborhood parks on previously acquired sites.
