Flower Baskets Installed Today!

Springtime flower baskets, an annual neighborhood tradition, were hung in outdoor spaces today in Pioneer Square. The hanging plants bring color and life into the neighborhood, accenting the brick facade architecture of the district for a picturesque effect.

This year 80 flower baskets were purchased by the Pioneer Square Business Improvement Area, which is managed by the Alliance for Pioneer Square and implements marketing and promotions for the neighborhood throughout the year.

The flower baskets are provided by Marshall Walton Design Group and are maintained daily. They will be up through mid-October.

Central Waterfront

  • Earlier this week, crews rerouted six blocks of waterfront traffic from Alaskan Way to a newly improved road beneath the viaduct. The traffic switch – which will last through at least early 2014 – changes the way drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians travel along the waterfront south of Spring Street. It also affects ferry access and parking. Visit our website for more details.
