Pike Place Expansion Breaks Ground

Pike Place Expansion Breaks Ground

Work has started on the new Pike Place MarketFront, an expansion of Pike Place Market on Western Avenue that will provide a connection to the waterfront. The project is turning a quarter-acre surface parking lot into a public plaza with views of Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains; table space for farmers, craftspeople and artisan purveyors; low-income housing; a neighborhood center; and 300 public parking spaces. The project is scheduled for completion in 2016, to open before the final demolition of the Alaskan Way Viaduct.
