Renton – Repair Introduction


Recycle Repair Reweave

The activation of existing interior courtyards in the “Old Town” downtown can be realized through collaboration between the city, businesses, and property owners.  Economics uses include farmers market, outdoor movies, and exterior dining.

Maintain Positive Assets, Both Physical and Social

“The most amazing thing that I have noticed in Renton is the presence of hidden courtyards.  What appeared to be a crack in the wall, turned into the entrance to a very small, but tastefully organized, playground for kids.” – UW Storefront Studio student Marijana Misic
