2023 Annual Report on the University of Washington Master Plan, Seattle Campus

Linked below is the fourth 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 2022.

2023 Annual Report

In this reporting period, the University had largely returned to normal operations after the pandemic with most students attending class in person. Many employees still have the option to telecommute several days per week.

With regard to the requirements of the annual report, two sites have been under construction by the University of Washington: C11 (Interdisciplinary Engineering Building) and IMA Pool Expansion. Two sites have been under design: W27 (multi-user building including Center for Advanced Materials and Clean Energy Technologies) and E59 (ICA Basketball Performance Center). Two projects S40 (Health Sciences Education Building) and C3 (Founders Hall) were completed during this period. The University has completed 120k square feet of its 6M allowed total. The University measured a 13% single occupancy vehicle rate, which is a decline of 5.9% since 2018. The University made its first payment under Condition 65 (Transportation Capital Improvements) and is in discussion with SDOT about paying for Condition 63 (ITS Improvements). With the selection of Bellwether Housing to develop a 244-unit mixed-income tower, the University is making progress toward its commitment to build affordable housing.
