You may have noticed some exciting new developments here at Union Square.

Here are the highlights:

*The beautiful new glass entry at 6th & Union is now fully operational.

*Ethan Stowell’s Cortina Restaurant officially opened May 16th!    (Did you know? Apparently every table and bar seat has a plug   and a USB port…and this is the largest ESR yet!)

*The One Union retail area is nearing completion

*Evergreens Salad is serving fresh salads three ways!

*The main lobby remodel of Two Union is progressing well, with finish materials now going in- including flooring, wall surfaces and ceilings.

We anticipate the majority of the lobby opening and being complete in early fall. Keep watching for updates!

Thank you, Union Square donors!

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.
