Map of building age with historic landmarks and districts from the Map App
At the Southeast Quadrant charrette in early June, the project team unveiled a new interactive map application (map app). The online tool allowed attendees to look at data for the Central Eastside, including walksheds, parcels, historic resources, public property, water mains, parks, trails, bike routes, the urban renewal area and much more. With iPads and laptops, participants were able to use the Map App during their conversations about land use issues in the district.
Now the SEQ Map App is online for anyone to explore and use. It’s a work in progress; data and layers will be added and updated throughout the project.
How can I use the map app?

Note the list of map layers in the top left corner and the legend in the lower left side.
You can create endless map combinations. You can also use the Map App to answer questions. Here are a few suggestions:
- Is my property going to be within a 5-minute walk of a new MAX light rail station?
Turn on: Walksheds and Parcels.
- Are all the oldest buildings in the district already protected with national landmark status?
Turn on: Building Age and Historic Resources.
- Is employment density highest in the Employment Opportunity Subarea (EOS) between SE 3rd and Water Ave?
Turn on: Employment Density and EOS.
