The corner of Third Avenue and Pine Street in downtown got a lot more fun in 2018 thanks to a new partnership between DSA and the Seattle Department of Transportation.
Featuring live music, special lighting, tasty meal options, open seating, interactive art, games and helpful staffing by DSA every day of the week, the Pine Street Plaza is part of the larger Pike Pine Renaissance revitalization and the first phase of enhancements along this centrally located but underutilized block. Pedestrians are invited to enjoy the musical stylings of local buskers, choose their character in the Faces of Seattle art installation, munch on hot food truck fare or simply relax. DSA staff are standing by with a trusty resource cart full of information, directions and advice on downtown happenings. The plaza will continue to evolve over the next two years, adding more activities, improving nearby signage and eventually raising the splashy blue and yellow footprint to curb level.
