Pike Place Market is a Seattle icon. How do we preserve the market and yet enable it to grow? Are we saving the right things? What do we want the market to be like in 50 years' time? How does it anchor the neighborhood now, and how will the new connection to the waterfront change the character of the market, or enhance it? This evening will be an exploration of opinions, the balance between development and preservation, and the directions future growth of the market might take.

Finding the Venue
By Stairs: If you stand next to Rachel the Piggy Bank, under the Clock Sign, and facing Pike Place Fish, there is an upward staircase on your left (just to the left of Mt. Townsend Creamery). The Atrium Loft will be at the top of those stairs.
By Elevator: From First Ave & Pike, at the newsstand, walk inside the Arcade away from the street. There is a hallway on the left just past DeLaurenti's, opposite Seattle Bagel Bakery. Just through the hallway is an elevator on the left-hand side; the meeting rooms are on floor 3.
Parking: The Market Parking Garage @ 1531 Western Ave, Seattle, offers an evening flat rate from 5pm for $5
April 8, Broadway Performance Hall
Capitol Hill prides itself on proximity to downtown while boasting a mix of uses almost absent from the neighboring business district. New mixed-use projects compete with the architectural soul of the neighborhood, rooted in structures of the old 'autorow' and historic housing stock. Can this welcome density and diversity be integrated into the neighborhood without losing its architectural character?
