The master plan to renew Burien’s core is being realized, project by project. The Burien Transit Center is adjacent the City’s new mixed-use Town Square project, including the Library, City Hall, and mixed-use retail and residential development. Construction is underway for a new multilevel 462-stall garage and an adjoining 43-space surface lot that will add 164 spaces to the Transit Center parking capacity.

The urban design challenge for this facility was to achieve a sense of place now, amidst this area of change, and in the future when the center will be part of a pedestrian-oriented and mixed-use community.
