Jackson Hub Meetup! January 24th

Check out concepts designs for Jackson Hub! The Alliance for Pioneer Square, SCIDpda, and Historic South Downtown are partnering to explore improvements to the public realm in the Jackson Hub area. The project adds to existing work from the Pioneer Square Parks and Gateways Project and builds off of the South Jackson Street Connections Report.

The Pioneer Square and Chinatown/International District neighborhoods come together at the intersection of S Jackson St between 3rd and 5th avenues. This area serves as one of the busiest and most vital transportation hubs in the city. The adjacent open spaces and pedestrian connections in this busy corridor lack pedestrian amenities and essentially cut off both neighborhoods from each other, and other major destinations (waterfront, stadium district and downtown). To better connect these communities, the neighborhoods are reclaiming this area through a holistic approach to public space and pedestrian improvements.
