University District Development Photos: January 2014

Terry Hall (1953), January 24, 2014

The following photos were taken in Seattle’s University District, on the University of Washington Seattle Campus. The projects shown here are:

  • Montlake Triangle
  • University of Washington Link Light Rail Station
  • Maple Hall and Terry Hall


Montlake Triangle
Rainier Vista NE & NE Pacific Place

This project by the University of Washington will modify the southern end of Rainier Vista by grade-separating Rainier Vista NE, Burke-Gilman Trail, and NE Pacific Place. Additionally, the configuration of Montlake Triangle over the Triangle Parking Garage will be modified. When completed, a pedestrian overpass will be located over the trail and street. This project is in tandem with the University of Washington Station project.

This station will be the northern terminus of Sound Transit’s Link Light Rail line, until the line is extended further north toward Seattle’s Northgate neighborhood. Service to the station is planned to begin in 2016, and the parking spaces removed for the project construction will be restored upon completion. Also included in this project is a pedestrian bridge over Montlake Blvd NE.

Maple Hall & Terry Hall
1101 NE Campus Pkwy

Terry Hall is a residence hall built in 1953, with 11 floors and a capacity of 846 residents in double & triple dormitory rooms. Included is Eleven 01 Café, located in a building which connected Terry Hall with the former Lander Hall (1957-2012). Also included are lounges, study rooms, music practice rooms, and underground parking. Terry Hall residents moved next door in December 2013/January 2014 to the new Lander Hall, which replaced the former Lander Hall.

Terry Hall will be demolished and replaced with Maple Hall and the new Terry Hall, with demolition beginning in February 2014 and completion of the new buildings in July 2015. Maple Hall will be at the east end of the site, and the new Terry Hall will be at the west end. Both new buildings will have 8 floors above-ground, with five wood-framed floors above three concrete-framed floors, and an underground parking floor.

Combined, the buildings will be about 440,000 square feet in size, with an estimated capacity of 1150 residents in single & double bedroom suites with private bathrooms. Also included are housing administration offices, common spaces, and an unknown amount of parking spots.
