Union Square Escalator to Rainier Tower_Upcoming Closure

As you may have seen or heard, Rainier Tower’s pedestrian concourse between Union Square and the Rainier Tower will have limited accessibility effective August 1. Furthermore, Union Square has revised their construction schedule for work above the escalators leading to the concourse to coincide with a portion of the Rainier Tower’s work.   

As of Monday, July 31st at 8PM, the Union Square escalators leading to the concourse will be closed for an approximate 4-week period.  Access will then be limited to the 5th Avenue entrance adjacent to the 5th Avenue Theatre.  Market Fresh and Umma’s Lunch Box, both eateries in the concourse, will be open during the construction period.  

For those who use the pedestrian concourse as their normal route to and from Union Square, please remember to enter the buildings at 6th and University or 6th and Union rather than through the concourse. 

We appreciate everyone’s patience while Union Square’s renovation work is underway. Contact Building Management at unionsquareservice@waholdings.com with any questions.  Thank you.
