CitizenM broke ground on a second Seattle location this week in the city’s Pioneer Square neighborhood. The 10-story, 216-room hotel will join the citizenM Seattle South Lake Union, which is slated to open this April.

As with the South Lake Union location, the team behind citizenM Seattle Pioneer Square includes the Amsterdam-based firm Concrete, which designs all the brand’s hotels; the architecture firm Gensler and general contractor Mortenson.

Located across the street from the Seattle Ferry Terminal, the 66,918-square-foot hotel will be located near art galleries, boutique shops and dining. Nearby attractions include the CenturyLink Field, Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park and Waterfall Garden Park.
