The Urbanist’s tour series takes you to the hidden nooks and splendid neighborhoods across Seattle and the greater Puget Sound region. Join us with local experts to explore and learn about our built and natural environments.

Next week join us and Friends of Waterfront Seattle for a unique look at MarketFront, the expansion of historic Pike Place Market. We’ll learn about the history of the project, what services it offers to vendors and the community, and what the next steps are to connect to the waterfront. Friends will have a VR simulation of the Overlook Walk and we’ll stop by Waterfront Space to learn more about the future of this important public project.

See details and registration information below. When registering, please consider a donation of $10 or more per person to support our nonprofit volunteer work. All of The Urbanist’s events and educational programs are free and open to the general public, and we appreciate your support!
