Join SAF for "Urban Character: Seattle Neighborhoods Then + Now: Pioneer Square" the second talk in their 2014 Design in Depth lectures series. The "Urban Character" series will look at different areas in Seattle, exploring how our communities grow and thrive thanks to creative ideas that re-invent neighborhoods while staying true to their histories through adaptive re-use and other development strategies.

Seattle's Pioneer Square has a history of ups and downs. After years of talking about the "renaissance of Pioneer Square", new housing, retail, restaurants and a slew of businesses are moving in. What does the future of Pioneer Square look like, and how do we maintain the City's first neighborhood's architectural history while creating a "new" place that will thrive and once again be a shining star for Seattle?
