Jude’s Old Town Streatery
VIA’s Community Design Studio completed the design for a new streatery – an SDOT-sponsored parklet prototype intended for serving food – along the bike trail in Seattle’s Rainier Valley. The parklet represented a project with a high level of community support, in a neighborhood in need of public amenity and community investment. Since its opening in 2017, the small outdoor space has hosted a variety of neighborhood gatherings and community events, in addition to extending the serving space of its adjacent restaurant host, Jude’s Old Town Pub. Metal art on the streatery was created by artist Anna Sher, from spare bike parts.
