Friends of Waterfront Seattle

Nitze-Stagen and Daniels Real Estate are proud to be core funders of the Urban Parks Activation Partnership, a collaborative effort spearheaded by Friends of the Waterfront Seattle, the Downtown Seattle Association, Seattle Parks Foundation, Metropolitan Improvement District, and the Alliance for Pioneer Square, to make the city’s urban parks more vibrant, safe and welcoming. In particular, our contribution will support pilot projects in Westlake Park and Occidental Park that enhance these well-known public spaces and help realize their untapped potential while experimenting with new ideas for activation and programming of Seattle’s new waterfront park through another project called Hot Spot. Collectively, these projects will help demonstrate new approaches to achieving vibrant urban parks and serve as a model for how Waterfront Seattle, the city’s transformative 20 acre park project, will be programmed and managed.

SODO Urban Art Corridor logo

SODO Urban Art Corridor

Nitze-Stagen was the original financial sponsor for the SODO Urban Art Corridor in 1996 and allowed the project to use some of its property for the initial public demonstration project. The concept behind the urban art corridor is to take the underutilized rear side of industrial buildings along a bus transit path (soon to be light rail corridor too) and create an opportunity for talented youth to express themselves through their art for everyone to see. The genesis of the project was to determine a way to channel the energy behind the graffiti in the area into a positive result for the community and for the youth involved.

Urban Artworks Project

In 1996 Nitze-Stagen & Co., Inc. joined with others in our community to fund the SODO Urban Art Corridor. From that humble beginning, the Urban Artworks Project was born in 1998. ArtWorks developed from the desire of the SODO Business Association to clean up trash and graffiti along the busway in Seattle’s industrial zone. A plan was developed to enrich the surroundings and discourage graffiti by creating murals throughout this area now known as the SODO Urban Art Corridor. The collaboration of private and public partners facilitated the creation of an arts program for at-risk youth centered on the development of these murals. ArtWorks incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1998, and the scope of their work has expanded far beyond the corridor. ArtWorks employs, trains, and mentors a “Base Crew” of at-risk youth ages 14-18 (most of whom are on probation). These are good kids in bad situations and the positive environment ArtWorks provides can make all the difference. Experienced artist mentors work in supportive relationships with youth in the hands-on process of designing, painting and installing murals throughout Seattle. The youths also participate in numerous other activities designed to develop job and life skills. In addition, they lead groups from area youth organizations and schools in mural creation projects and provide community service opportunities. As a result of the program, youth are nurtured while brightening communities throughout the city.
