Revitalizing Pioneer Square

Pioneer Square

Pioneer Square

Mayor McGinn, along with Pioneer Square businesses, community leaders, and former Mayor Charles Royer, are working together to revitalize Pioneer Square into a vibrant urban community, as a destination for new jobs, residents, and nightlife.

They are currently restoring King Street Station, and announced today that Comcast has been selected to provide the next generation of Internet service using the City-owned conduit, servicing businesses on First Avenue this fall.

This is good progress, but there is still work to be done to complete the revitalization of Pioneer Square. Here’s what we’ve got coming for the rest of 2011 and in 2012:

• Supporting development on the North Lot of Qwest Field through financing and permitting tools.

• Starting construction on the First Hill streetcar, which will serve Pioneer Square along South Jackson Street.

• Designating an individual to coordinate communications with City departments and the community about construction impacts on parking availability.

• Re-examining the feasibility of a public restroom at the Fire Station.

We know there’s still a long way to go. We will keep working with the Pioneer Square community to lay a foundation for change.
