MADISON MARQUETTE ANNOUNCES REDEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR PREMIER, DOWNTOWN SEATTLE RETAIL DESTINATION, PACIFIC PLACE

Madison Marquette, a private real estate investment and operating company, officially announced plans to redevelop Pacific Place, downtown Seattle’s premier urban street retail destination.  Anchored by Barneys New York and Tiffany & Co., Pacific Place is located in one of the fastest growing cities in the Nation.  The 339,000 square-foot, four-story retail center will undergo a multimillion-dollar renovation designed by the international architectural firm Gensler. The project is scheduled to begin in the 4th quarter of 2017 with the first phase opening in the fall of 2018.  The redevelopment plans include remodeling of the center’s common areas along with a new South Lake Union facing grand entrance allowing for additional shop space and dining opportunities to better satisfy the strong global retail and restaurant demand for downtown Seattle. The redevelopment strategy will focus on appealing to best in class retailers looking for a well curated destination adjacent to Nordstrom’s flagship.

“With the ever growing high-tech neighborhood of South Lake Union to the north, the doubling in size of the Washington State Convention Center to the east, and the recently renovated adjacent Nordstrom flagship store connected via sky-bridge, it’s clear that Pacific Place will continue to be the central location for shopping in Seattle,” said Daniel Meyers, Sr. Vice President, Project Management, Madison Marquette.

The most recent happenings for Madison Marquette’s redevelopment include the purchase of the attached parking garage in the fall of 2016 from the city of Seattle and the recent March 2017 opening of the popular restaurant, Din Tai Fung.  The shopping center has also introduced an active pop-up store program that showcases art, new retail brands and experiences which reflect the future of Pacific Place.

“The redevelopment of Pacific Place builds upon the momentum and investment reshaping Seattle’s Pike and Pine streets,” said Downtown Seattle Association President and CEO Jon Scholes. “It’s exciting to see Madison Marquette enhancing such a significant piece of our retail landscape. We are seeing a historic level of both public and private investment in this corridor bringing a new mix of retail, restaurants and experiences in the heart of Seattle.”
