Pike Place Market’s New Wing

Our beloved Pike Place Market is going to get bigger and better! According to the Market’s official website, the project known as MarketFront “is a low-rise, mixed-use development that will provide parking for the Market and the waterfront, low-income housing for seniors, expanded social services, and additional retail and restaurant space. The MarketFront will also provide 30,000-square-feet of public open space and views of Elliott Bay, while creating a critical new connection between Pike Place Market and the new Central Waterfront that emerges after the demolition of the Alaskan Way Viaduct.” But don’t worry; the existing marketplace will not (and cannot) be significantly altered by the expansion. What will change is that we’ll now have access to an even bigger variety of food/drink in the form of beer, chocolate, biscuits, and potentially a seafood restaurant. YUM.

Watch List: Shiro Kashiba’s Triumphant Return


Everyone stop what you’re doing and take a moment to appreciate the fact that Shiro Kashiba has turned his back to retirement and is headed towards Pike Place Market for a new sushi restaurant! Recently the Pike Place Market Historical Commission unanimously approved plans for his restaurant located at 86 Pine. The sushi restaurant is set to open by summer 2015 if all goes to plan (which we sincerely hope does).

You might be wondering, what’s better than Shiro’s sushi? Nothing, that’s what.
