PEDESTRIAN PRIDE -- In honor of LGBTQ pride, Capitol Hill will be sporting some brand-new rainbow-colored crosswalks and will continue to do so for years to come. Mayor Ed Murray unveiled the Broadway at 10th & 11th crosswalks on Tuesday, remarking that "it says something about this neighborhood and it also says something about Seattle. Check out more photos of the colorful walkways.

PHOTO TOURS -- Tuesday, Seattle held a groundbreaking ceremony for Pike Place MarketFront, a multi-level expansion that will convert a .75-acre surface parking lot into a public plaza. It's the latest in a long line of changes and updates for the iconic marketplace. Curbed decided to compare ten images from Pike Place's past to what they they look like today. Some things change, some things stay very much the same.

RENDERINGS REVEALED -- The property at 1634 11th Avenue has been a mortuary, theater and writer's haven, amongst other things. Now it'll be a mixed-use complex like everything else in Capitol Hill. The ground floor will belong to Hugo House but everything above will be market rate apartments. Check out early renderings of the project here.
