The new Pike Place Market Waterfront Entrance will provide additional public open space and expansive views of Puget Sound while connecting the Market to the Waterfront with easy pedestrian access.

The project will reclaim an underutilized parcel of land known as PC-1 Northwithin the Market Historic District and create a dynamic connection between downtown and the new Seattle Waterfront.

The Waterfront Entrance site is located on a .75 acre site along Western Avenue long used as a surface parking lot. The project is a low-rise, mixed-use development that will provide parking for both the Market and the Waterfront, several stories of low-income and workforce housing, expanded facilities for the Market's social service agencies, and added retail and restaurant space.
