Little information if offered about zoning specifications for Pike Place Market in the municipal code. While this region is included in "downtown" ordinances, frequently Pike Place is singled out in the text as a neighborhood to which the code will not apply. When looking at the Pike Place literature available, it seems that this mixed-use neighborhood focuses on preserving historic values and community amenities.
