About the project

Overlook Walk is a public pathway connecting the waterfront to Pike Place Market and Seattle's urban core. It will span from the Market's new MarketFront expansion over the rebuilt Alaskan Way below, providing elevated views of Elliott Bay and the city skyline, a safe and accessible connection, and new public spaces to relax and enjoy.

Timeline of the design and construction process for the Overlook Walk from 2011 to 2022


Overlook Walk is at the center of improvements from Pier 62 up to Pike Place Market and east along to Seattle’s urban core, including Pike and Pine streets. The future public walkway enhances the existing web of connections through and near the Market. It is designed for all ages and abilities, with gradual slopes, new elevators and places to linger along the walk.
