Pushing for a more accessible Pioneer Square

Pushing for a more accessible Pioneer Square

Pushing for a more accessible Pioneer Square In January, the Alliance reported on the new Jackson Street sidewalk repair, a community-led effort to repair one of the most traveled entries into Pioneer Square. This effort was a result of the International Sustainability Institute’s Active Streets Report. The report listed over 40 inaccessible spots in the neighborhood, one of which was the Jackson Street sidewalk. While we are chipping away at improvements, many more repairs are necessary to link transit and destinations for everyone. Since that time, we learned of a Seattleite working diligently to make Pioneer Square accessible. Frustrated by […]

Business & Community Development Update- March 2015

The energy in the neighborhood is palpable, a great feeling as spring unfolds in Pioneer Square. The reasons are many: • Intrigue Chocolate Co. has signed the lease on the new retail space just east of the intersection of Jackson and Occidental. Owners Aaron Barthel and Karl Mueller currently operate from a small kitchen down Washington street west of 1st avenue on the second floor of a historic building. Despite being a bit tricky to find, their walk-in traffic has grown to exceed the small shop’s capacity. A dedicated street-level shop will give them more room for their conversational-style retail […]

New Accessible Sidewalk on Jackson Street

New Accessible Sidewalk on Jackson Street

You may have recently noticed the new sidewalk on Jackson Street on your way to and from Pioneer Square. Thanks to a community and city effort, this stretch of sidewalk on Jackson from 2nd Ave S to 3rd Ave S is now accessible for everyone to travel. Not only was this sidewalk slanted as high as 17% grade, the tall alley curb made it impossible for anyone using a wheelchair or pushing deliveries to access.
