Public Space Projects

Pine Street Plaza

In September 2019, DSA, in partnership with the Seattle Department of Transportation, brought a number of enhancements to this centrally located public space that also happens to be Seattle’s largest parklet.

In efforts to revitalize a focal point of Pine Street, we installed a brand-new turf seating area, along with a public art installation, rotating food trucks and other beautification amenities. Some of these installations have been temporarily paused to follow public health guidance around COVID-19, but DSA remains committed to improving this area.

The space is monitored and staffed daily by DSA’s friendly and knowledgeable ambassadors.

Next time you’re looking for a respite in the middle of the city, stop by Pine Street Plaza.
