The MarketFront to Break Ground on May 20th!

Posted March 30, 2015

Groundbreaking of the Pike Place MarketFront
Save the Date: Wednesday, May 20 at 11 AM
We are pleased to announce a Groundbreaking Celebration for the Pike Place MarketFront on Wednesday, May 20, 2015. Please join Seattle Mayor Ed Murray, City officials, Pike Place Market PDA Council, Pike Place Market Foundation Board, Friends of the Market, Pike Up! supporters and our entire Market community in celebrating this historic milestone.

The new Pike Place MarketFront expansion is reclaiming and completing the last piece of the historic district, and fulfilling a 40-year vision of those who fought to save the Market. Spurred by the future removal of the Viaduct, the MarketFront expansion provides the unique opportunity to complete an important chapter in the market’s past, and create a new one, with dynamic public space and a pedestrian connection to the waterfront. 

We hope you will join us. More details coming soon!
