JUNEAU — On a given summer day in Juneau, it can be hard to tell that there may be 10,000 tourists roaming around the island. In certain areas, it’s easy to see the crowds pouring off the cruise ship docks, headed for the main stretch of downtown.

When all six docks are occupied, they can deliver enough passengers to double the population of Juneau, which is home to about 30,000 people. This year, over the course of the whole summer, cruise ships are expected to bring about 1.3 million tourists through the state, with the majority of them landing in Juneau at least briefly. That’s more than half of the estimated 2.2 million total visitors expected in Alaska this season. That’s a significant increase, even over last year’s traffic. However, the businesses in downtown Juneau are … [Read more...] about Best practices help Juneau absorb leap in tourist traffic

NOTICE ANYTHING DIFFERENT these days about the place you call home? Other than EVERYthing? Mary Johnston notices the big-city big picture, and the subtler, smaller, neighborhood-level pixels that shape it. But then, she’s an architect — she and her husband, Ray Johnston, founded Johnston Architects in 1991 — and plugged-in visionaries have a way of noticing things. “Architects tend to be canaries in the coal mine,” she says. “We start to see trends in real estate before a lot of other people feel those impacts because we work with a lot of builders, developers and financers who are looking ahead. We were particularly susceptible in 2008 to people who had plans to build things and thought: ‘We don’t think we’re going to be able to do that.’ We tend to feel those trends a little bit before.” Someone didn’t build something? Yes. That was different, too. “So much has changed,” says Johnston. “Right … [Read more...] about 5 architectural approaches that are shaping the way we live
