Help Improve the Design Review Process

Design ReviewMost new private development for commercial or multi-family buildings in Seattle must go through Design Review to help ensure buildings are designed to enhance the character of the city. The Department of Planning and Development (DPD) is hosting an open house on September 29 in Columbia City for their Design Review Program Improvements project. This website provides background about the Design Review program, updates on their efforts to improve the program, and more information. Also, check out the DPD’s Shaping Seattle website, a new online tool that provides locations and detailed information of active Design Review projects.
