"We The market entrance, as featured on so many postcards and souvenirs, would be irreparably damaged. The proposed 14-story tower would be a monstrous blight on the Pike Place Market. No new building, however well-designed, would give the same experience."
"We have fought to preserve this heart of our city for the past 50 years. The potential for a string of tall structures across from the market is all too real as Seattle loses its history in a headlong building spree. We need a creative solution from our public officials to preserve the character of this historic Market entrance."
