Over the last year the Alliance has continued to grow a strong economic base in Pioneer Square. We’ve created new marketing campaigns, strengthened our advocacy efforts, and built important inroads with our community action work. As Seattle grows at an unprecedented pace, we ensure Pioneer Square grows too—strategically and authentically. Help support our efforts to continue shaping Pioneer Square into an example of modern urban success through your generous gift today.
Seattle’s original neighborhood is a place like no other. Pioneer Square offers exceptional historic architecture, a thriving arts community, vibrant shops, acclaimed restaurants, exciting night life, and an energetic game day atmosphere for Seattle’s major sports teams – all within one square mile. Within such a vibrant and diverse neighborhood, there are a variety of needs, issues, and perspectives to balance. One minute we’re tackling the heartbreak and complexities of homelessness and encampments, and the next we’re celebrating the opening of new restaurant and retail businesses. We experience the daily buzz of activity in Occidental Park, while wondering how to increase foot traffic in parts of the neighborhood impacted by construction. We strive to help businesses and property owners understand how the country’s first Historic Preservation District works, as we simultaneously fight to make public realm improvements and create a neighborhood accessible for all. We prepare for First Thursday Art Walk each month, feeling pride for this long standing Pioneer Square tradition, as we continue to think creatively about how to expand support to the business of arts and culture in our neighborhood.
The success of the 860+ businesses in the neighborhood, whether here for one year or 40, is what keeps this heart beating and makes this a neighborhood where people want to live, work, and visit.
