Yes, it’s still happening in the Square. The transformation taking place as Altstadt prepares to open its doors to serve beer and brats is stunning.  They assure us it will be this month.  We’re watching and counting the days. Across the street, E.

Route 99: Now an Easy Connection to Downtown

Route 99: Now an Easy Connection to Downtown

In case you haven’t noticed, there’s a bit of construction along the Central Waterfront, as well as in and around Pioneer Square. One of the impacts beginning on Saturday, September 28th is the re-route of Metro Bus Route 99. The route will no longer run a Waterfront/1st Ave loop and instead will run north/south on 1st Ave from Broad Street in Belltown down through the International District. We for one think this will make getting to and from downtown a snap! http://metrofutureblog.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/99rev.pdf
