Pike Place Market residential housing

Residential

Pike Place Market is more than a public market; it’s a vibrant neighborhood home of 500 residents, many of whom are low-income people. The Pike Place Market Preservation and Development Authority (PDA) has three HUD subsidized buildings located directly within Pike Place Market, just steps away from the famous fish guys, Rachel the Piggy Bank and the neon Public Market Center clock.

The Market also has affordable market rate studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments. There are also Single Resident Occupancy apartments with a kitchenette and shared bathroom.

Some of our buildings have sun and patio decks and offer spectacular views of Puget Sound. Our buildings offer easy access to the Market's many businesses.

If interested in Pike Place Market residential opportunities, please review our Criteria for Residency.
