U District Rezone, High Efficiency Dwellings & Is KC Affordable?

Seattle’s Office of Planning and Community Development (OPCD) released draft recommendations on the University District rezone and urban design proposal in late May. The draft recommendations consist of a large breadth of changes to development regulations in the neighborhood and substantially increase development capacity. Most of the proposed changes would affect the core of the neighborhood near a future light rail station planned to open in 2021.
