Today's 5.7 mile walk was a real mixed bag of land use. I walked streets in the Beacon Hill and Mount Baker neighborhoods near the intersection of Rainier and Martin Luther King Avenues S.
Mutual Fish Company and Remo Borracchini's Bakery and Mediterranean Market.
Mount Baker Light Rail Station. This is where the train leaves the tunnel and starts to run above ground.
Artspace, commercial space with 57 low income artist studio/dwelling units above (no parking proposed).
The Metro Mount Baker Transit Center is just across Rainier at this location so, I guess, planners assumed that everyone is walking, biking or taking the bus to the light rail. Follow the Artspace link above and read that "One of the goals of the project is to jumpstart the transformation of the Mt. Baker neighborhood from a car-oriented environment — Rainier Avenue is now a busy four-lane thoroughfare — into an “urban village” whose residents choose walking, biking or riding mass transit over cars."
Franklin High School and the intersection of Rainier and Martin Luther King Jr. Way, there is an elaborate overpass.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park.
