As we wrap up work and prepare to reopen the entrances at 7th Avenue and the stairs leading to levels 1 and 2 near the retail concourse, the next phase of work is set to begin. This next phase involves some structural work which will require the closing of the Two Union escalators at the 6th and Union entrance on level 1 up to and including the escalators to the main lobby level.
The first closure is a one week period from May 15 to 19. The escalators will reopen but later close again for approximately two months. Another announcement will be provided for this closure.
We understand the inconvenience this closure is going to be for many of our tenants and guests and would like to provide alternatives during this closure. Several building entrances to note are:
- From 6th Avenue, enter mid-block between HomeStreet Bank and Marcos. Proceed through the second level of the courtyard to the doorways and use either the Grand Staircase, or elevator 30 to reach the Two Union main lobby.
- 6th and Union – enter the courtyard and use courtyard stairs to level 2 and enter the building or continue up to level 3 via the courtyard stairs.
- 6th Avenue, enter near MOD pizza and follow the retail concourse to the Grand Staircase.
- 7th Avenue, this entrance will be reopened on May 15. The elevator at this entrance is also an accessible elevator and can take you from 7th Avenue up to the Two Union main lobby level.
- 7th Avenue and Union, external stairs between Two Union and the Convention Center. At the top of the staircase, turn right, then use the entrance near Tully’s.
- Parking garage entrances are also available.
Thank you for your patience while we undergo renovations. Please contact the building management team with questions or assistance at: email@example.com.
Renovations for the next several weekends in the level 2 retail concourse, outside of Starbucks and Walla Walla Farms, will continue as preparations are underway for the new Terrazzo flooring. While this work is in progress the retail concourse will be closed (weekends only from Friday at 6PM to Monday at 5AM). Navigating between One and Two Union Square is limited to outside entrances/exits. Parking garage elevators are not affected.
Continue to check this page for updates; we’ll update the information as often as possible. Thank you for your continued patience and support during renovations. For any questions, please call building management at (206) 623-4567.
Demo of the carpet and ceilings has begun in the retail corridor in the area near Starbucks and Walla Walla Farms. The seating from this area has been relocated to the One Union side – just past the fireplace lobby. Please visit the area around the corner to find seating for your lunch, coffee or break from the office. We expect that the renovation project in this retail corridor will be complete by mid-June. We are excited for everyone to see the improvements on level 2 in just a few short months!
Thanks for your patience during renovations. Come back to this site often for more updates!
The renovation project certainly feels more “real” now that the work is not hidden behind construction barriers. As the construction moves to various sections of levels 1 and 2 of the Two Union lobbies, please be mindful of the barriers, areas or doorways that may be closed, and watch for way-finding signage. We will ensure signs are posted to keep you informed of best routes when certain areas require closing.
If any questions arise regarding the project, please email UnionSquareService@waholdings.com for information. As always, we appreciate everyone’s patience while we’re renovating.

World Fresh Asian Eatery is easier than ever to visit! Access is easy; you can stay indoors or brave the rain – simply use the Level 1 courtyard entrance by the fitness center or turn towards the south on Level 1 near the escalator. Stop by, enjoy a great lunch and see some of the building’s work in progress. Look for a much improved and inviting space in the area surrounding World Fresh in April.
As promised in our Union Square newsletter and other communications, the Two Union Square lobby renovation project has begun.
By now, you have all certainly noticed the construction barrier on level 2 which has blocked access to the stairs leading to 7th Avenue. And likely a lot of our tenants and guests have noticed the entry from 7th Avenue drop off area is limited to the elevator or the retail dock door (this door brings you in to the building near Starbucks).
To access to the Fitness Center while this phase of work is occurring, please use the level 1 courtyard entrance. For World Fresh Asian Eatery, you can also use their courtyard entrance or the hallway on level 1 at the bottom of the escalators.
This beginning phase of renovations is expected to last until early May and then you will see other selected closures in the lobby areas as we continue to improve your building. Please keep an eye on this website and we’ll post updates often.
We appreciate everyone’s patience while renovations are underway.
