The funny building on right hand side is a parking building…which is called “sinking ship”.
In 1960s, Pioneer square was a target of Renewal. They were planning to knock off all the old building and replace to modern style.
In 1962, historic Hotel Seattle was replaced with this ugly parking building.
But soon after, people recognized their mistake and renewal plan was canceled.
From today’s point of view, this area is quite well preserved…..but this “sinking ship” is something they have to.
