Floor Warden and Emergency Procedures Training

Union Square’s annual Floor Warden Training sessions are scheduled to commence in May in the Boardroom on the following dates:

  • One Union Square Tenants: Tuesday, May 15th from 1:00pm-4:00pm
  • Two Union Square Tenants: Wednesday, May 23rd from 9:00am-12:00pm

Although one training session may be a bit more specific to one building or the other, Floor Wardens may attend the session that works best with their schedule as much of the safety information will be the same for both sessions. Additionally, anyone interested in learning more about Union Square’s emergency procedures are welcome – whether or not they are an assigned floor warden. We encourage anyone with an interest in emergency procedures to attend.

Per the Seattle Fire Code, annual fire safety and evacuation training is required for all employees who work in high rise buildings. Please encourage your Floor Wardens and staff to attend this important event. Floor Wardens should bring their Floor Warden Manual (red binder) so they can be prepared to share this information with all their coworkers. The Floor Warden Manual can also be found on our website at www.unionsquareseattletenant.com. Refreshments will be provided.

Renovation Update March 5, 2018

As you have noticed, our renovation project continues to move forward!  As part of this process, our contractor will be replacing the sidewalk on the northwest side of Union Square on 6th Avenue and Union Street.  The work will take place from March 12th-March 23rd from 7:00am-3:30pm.

During this time, the 6th and Union entrance to Two Union Square will remain open.  However, certain periods of construction will require the closure of the sidewalks on either 6th Avenue and/or Union Street.  Please follow the marked paths, indicated by our contractor’s construction barricades and cones.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to improve Union Square!

Renovation Update January 9, 2018

As you have likely noticed, we are nearing completion on the construction of a tunnel system in the Two Union Square main lobby that will allow renovation work to proceed while still allowing Tenants and their visitors access to the tower.

Our main goal is to provide clear, accessible routes for you and your office visitors to the tower during this phase of construction.  The following routes are available:

  1. Via the escalators from the Lower Lobby Level (Starbucks/Walla Walla Farms level)
  2. Via the southwest entrance (above the grand staircase leading out onto the third floor plaza in the Courtyard near the former shoe shine shop)
  3. Via Elevator 30 (Accessible from Levels 1, 2 and 7th Avenue)
  4. Via the East Entrance (by the Convention Center/Freeway Park)
  5. Via the East Parking Garage Elevators (northeast corner of main lobby)
  6. Via the Entrance adjacent to the East Parking Garage Elevators (northeast corner on the Convention Center/Freeway Park Level)

Please note that the Grand Staircase will remain closed during this portion of the project.  Additionally, the courtyard passageway outside, immediately north of the security desk is closed for construction staging.

The tunnel system will remain in place until this summer.  We apologize for the inconvenience, but look forward to revealing our new and improved Two Union Square main lobby.  We will keep you updated as construction progresses.

If you have any questions, please contact Tenant Services at 206.623.4567 or unionsquareservice@waholdings.com.

Thank You from Bloodworks Northwest!

Hello, One and Two Union Square Donors & Supporters!

Thanks for joining us on yesterday to donate and a special thanks to our internal supporters who promote the drives. Your support in our lifesaving pursuits is greatly appreciated. This is one of our very regular drives and your contribution means a great deal to all the patients you help support.

Blood Drive Results:

  • Total Registered Donors: 33 – We made our registration goal!  Thank you!
  • Units of Blood Collected: 28 units, not everyone can donate each time, we must give credit to those that tried!
  • Apheresis registered and collected: 1 – Thank you!  Plasma can help support trauma patients and burn victims and is needed every day!

Lives Saved: Since each donation can save up to three lives, your donations will help save the lives of up to 84  patients in our community. We had 2 first time donors.  We hope you will become career donors with Bloodworks Northwest!

We had 17 donors that have given over 8 pints of blood in their lifetime.  One  donor became a 1 gallon donor! One a 4 gallon donor, one at 7 gallon donor, one an 8 gallon donor and one a 10 gallon donor!  This is evidence that One and Two Union Square donors are committed to saving lives! Thank you for your tremendous support!

Just think. . . your donation could go to a heart transplant patient!  Or possibly patients receiving cancer treatment.

When you donate or help coordinate and promote a blood drive, you are saving lives!

Just another example of what YOU make possible.  Thank you!

For those who were able to donate whole blood, you’ll be eligible again 56 days from your donation, ­­­­­­­ February 28th.  You can make an appointment for the next blood drive, March 2nd, by clicking on this link: https://schedule.psbc.org/DonorPortal/GroupLanding.aspx?s=0528

Thank you for helping patients in need!

We were able to collect over 20 boxes of:

-Socks and gloves (Mary’s Place)
-School supplies, toothbrushes, and toothpaste (King County Coalition on Homelessness)

We are proud to help support these causes and we appreciate your generosity!

For those still interested in donating, feel free to drop off items at Tenant Services on the 28th floor of One Union Square.  Call or email 206.623.4567 or unionsquareservice@waholdings.com with any questions!
