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 […]

Spring Funding Drive

Spring Funding Drive

We’re happy to report that over the last year, we’ve achieved some pretty impressive goals in the neighborhood by furthering our advocacy, programming, marketing, and community action work to make a tangible difference. We negotiated a positive outcome in the important Alaskan Way Waterfront agreement, which will ensure vital access to the waterfront for the neighborhood. We also made great strides in supporting our local businesses in achieving success, and have devoted increased bandwidth to our communications and marketing efforts with the recent hire of our new Director of Communications. Also, within our parks and public places we expanded the flower basket […]

Pioneer Square Spring Clean 2017

Saturday, April 8th, 9:00am to 12:00pm Spring Clean is at our doorstep once again! Grab a co-worker, a neighbor, or that delinquent nephew and join us as we spruce up the neighborhood. Pull on those old college painting pants and get on with some graffiti abatement. Don grandpa’s dirty overalls and start yanking weeds. Whatever shabby old working clothes you have will do the trick. If you don’t have any, T-shirts will be provided along with coffee and snacks to get you pumped for the day.

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 […]

Alley Progress

Work begins in May to resurface two Pioneer Square alleys. Pioneer Square’s alleys are more walkable and inviting due to the collective efforts of art and lighting installation, resident stewardship, businesses opening and building façade improvements. In 2013, the International Sustainability Institute received a Department of Neighborhoods matching grant to redesign two alleys with a surface design acceptable to the Preservation Board, Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), utilities, residents and businesses. Before completing the design, ISI partnered with the Alliance and Seattle Chinatown International District Public Development Authority (SCIDPDA) to secure funding for three alleys – Canton Alley, Pioneer Passage […]
