CHS reported this morning that
Sound Transit has selected eight firms to submit bids to develop four housing and retail properties that will surround the future Capitol Hill light rail station.
The shortlisted firms will also sit down with the Capitol Hill Championgroup at a June 2nd public meeting to make sure they understand and adopt the community priorities forged over several years.

From Mel Burchett at Capitol Hill Champion:
Thanks again to all of you who have supported the Champion’s efforts in realizing and advocating for the community’s vision for the development at the Broadway Light Rail Station.
This afternoon Sound Transit’s Capital Committee will meet to discuss the Development Agreement that was unanimously approved by City Council on August 5th and will implement some of the neighborhood vision for affordable housing, public plaza, festival street and more. The public is welcome to attend, but please note that public comment will NOT be taken during this meeting.
The Champion will provide testimony in support of the Development Agreement at the September 26th Sound Transit Board Meeting. Public comment is welcome and will be taken at the start of the meeting, but there is no need to speak. You can support the Champion and Community by simply attending and standing up during our testimony to be counted.
We want to show our appreciation to the Sound Transit Board for taking the big step of embracing the process with Capitol Hill and the precedent it sets.
