Seattle Arena Transportation Access & Parking Study 
​Seattle, Washington
Client: ​Horton Street, LLC

A new $490 million hockey and basketball arena is being proposed in Seattle’s SODO neighborhood. This neighborhood is home to Safeco Field, Century Link Field, and the City’s industrial district including the Port of Seattle. There are concerns about the potential facility’s impacts to traffic, transit access, and freight mobility in the area. Parametrix completed a study to evaluate current parking patterns, impacts of the arena on parking, and how the transportation system in the area could function more efficiently.
