Linked below is the third annual report on physical development under the University of Washington’s Seattle Campus Master Plan as approved by the Seattle City Council in February 2019. The report is structured to respond to reporting requirements found in the City University Agreement (Ordinance 121193), the ordinance approving the Campus Master Plan (Ordinance 125733), and the Conditions of Approval attached to that ordinance. This report covers January through December 2021
In this reporting period, the University began to emerge from pandemic restrictions and resumed mostly in-person classes in the fall. Although operations are slowly returning to normal, not all people have returned to campus on a regular basis and Covid variants continue to affect the return. The University appreciates the ongoing partnership of City of Seattle staff and the sacrifices made throughout the greater community.
With regard to the requirements of the annual report, two sites have been under construction by the University of Washington: S40 (Health Sciences Education Building) and C3 (Founders Hall). Two sites have been under design: W27 (multi-user building including Center for Advanced Materials and Clean Energy Technologies) and C11 (Interdisciplinary Engineering Building). One additional site has been selected for development: E59 (Basketball Training and Health and High Performance Center). One project (ICA Softball Performance Center) has been completed during this period. The University measured a 16.4% single occupancy vehicle rate, which is a decline of 2.3% since 2018. As this is the beginning of a new Master Plan, many Conditions of Approval have not been completed yet.
