For the first time in 40 years, Seattle’s iconic Pike Market is expanding! The development, called the MarketFront, actually reclaims land that was part of the Market long ago. And when the MarketFront opens to the public on June 29, it will offer the Seattle area a new community gathering space, with spectacular views of the Puget Sound, as well as much more space for farmers, specialty food vendors, restaurants and community services.
Here at Laird Norton Wealth Management (LNWM), we have long known that people prosper when their communities prosper. So we applaud the work of the Pike Place Market Foundation (leaders in fundraising for the new MarketFront) in the form of a significant gift from LNWM to the Foundation. This gift comes as LNWM celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2017, with increased attention to collaborations that foster stronger communities and help the people of the Pacific Northwest thrive.
