Angle Lake Station Area Plan Update

City of SeaTac Staff is working with Sound Transit to coordinate the design and construction of the South Link light rail extension, which will extend light rail from the current light rail station at Sea-Tac Airport south to the Future Angle lake Station, located at South 200th Street and 28th Avenue South. This 1.6-mile elevated guideway and station will open in late 2016, the same time as University Link and four years earlier than originally envisioned.

With the goal to encourage transit-oriented development in the Angle Lake Station area, the City had contracted with Urban Land Institute to create a report which provides unbiased, pragmatic advise to the City regarding what form transit oriented development can take and how best to support desired community and economic development in this area of the City. A copy of the Technical Assistance Panel Report can be viewed HERE.

It is now being reporting in the SeaTac Winter Newsletter that City staff has initiated a project for the creation of the plan that will guide future development adjacent to Sound Transit’s Angle Lake Station. Key to this development planning effort is to form an understanding of the community’s vision for how the area can become a more walkable, bicycle-friendly, transit-oriented neighborhood that encourages healthy lifestyles and creates a thriving economic community within the city. 

In the upcoming weeks the Angle Lake Shore Club Blog will help introduce the members of the city’s station area planning team and identify how SeaTac residents, businesses and other stakeholders in the community can submit their ideas and provide suggestions to contribute toward a community supported plan.
