Bridging the Gap
Spanning the corner of the most populated thoroughfare in downtown Seattle, the 351,000-sq.-ft. 3rd and Pine Parking Garage bridges the gap between the downtown shopping district and the local farming merchants of Pike Place Market. Mirroring a larger city-wide effort to revitalize the area, the 50-year-old garage was ready for a new look.
The site was envisioned as a link between the retail core and Pikes Market on the other side; there is a huge amount of people moving back and forth between those areas, we feel [the cladding] beautified the project. This is really important for the City of Seattle in this iconic piece of downtown.
