Pioneer Square in Full Bloom

It’s finally May! Leaves are sprouting, flowers are beginning to bloom, and outdoor seating at our local eateries will quickly become a hot commodity. It’s also when summer flower baskets are installed by Marshall Walton Design Group! Over 400 of them will grace our historic neighborhood, on buildings and on streetlight poles. The Pioneer Square flower baskets have been an institution to the neighborhood since the 1970’s when they first appeared in force.  Since the 1980’s the program has grown from requiring just 1 part time employee to today where 3 full time workers are required to fulfill all of […]

Gilded Lamp Post Bases?!?!

They’re new. They’re shiny. They’re elegant. …They stand out like a sore thumb. In a district that’s accustomed to general disrepair, we’re not used to nice things on the street. So why are they here? Well, after a pole base was found broken on the SW corner of 1st Ave S and S Main St, we quickly reported the issue to the City via Find It Fix It. Like magic, a couple weeks later the base was replaced with said gilded looking base. We almost reported it to Find It Fix It again, but decided to dig deeper. A few […]
