MarketFront construction continues upward and is now approaching the Desimone Bridge. For more than a year, Market vendors, residents and community members have watched the process unfold as the former surface parking lot transforms into a new marketplace in keeping with the functions outlined in the City of Seattle’s Market charter. With 30,000 square feet of open public space with new views, a weather-proofed canopy with additional vending space for Daystall tenants, space for food production and on-site brewery, low-income housing, and social services—the MarketFront will truly be part of the Market.
Currently, Sellen Construction workers are completing the installation of “glulams,” the large wooden beams that provide the framework for the entire structure/retail space. The beams are an essential part of the overall design, which reflects the heavy timber beams found throughout the Market today.
