Seattle Monorail Planning + Design
VIA served as the lead architecture and urban design firm for the $1.75 billion Green Line of the Seattle Monorail Project. This 14 mile rapid transit line included 19 elevated stations from Ballard through downtown Seattle and West Seattle.
In addition to system-wide design, landscape, sustainability, and prototype station standards, VIA developed alignment planning, bridge, and guideway design concepts, detailed design of furniture, and signage.
VIA’s role as sustainability lead for the project was to create a system of sustainability measurement that would translate into a performance-based model for a Design-Build-Operate-Maintain contract.
