Downtown Seattle Association
The Pike-Pine area is at the heart of Downtown Seattle’s urban core, and the larger central business district. This area is one of Seattle’s most heavily trafficked, but faces increasing and visible streetscape deterioration. The Downtown Seattle Association believes the Pike-Pine area should be the best urban experience in the country connecting the Waterfront to the Pike Place Market, Retail Core, Convention Center and our cultural attractions. BDS Planning & Urban Design facilitated DSA’s Pike-Pine Task Force to complete a strategic assessment of the area, and acted as coordinator and project manager for the consultant team of Gustafson Guthrie Nichol (Streetscape Design); ECONorthwest (Funding Strategy); and Downtown Works (Retail Strategy).
