Fourth Great Public Space in Downtown Tacoma

This week's suggestion is a space that's widely used but rarely recognized: the Wells Fargo Plaza, the large open space to the west of the landmark 25-story office tower at 1201 Pacific Ave.

Part of the problem is that this space has no separate identity from the building. We might ask UNICO Properties, the owners of both properties, to put a separate moniker on their "to do" list. To UNICO's credit, though, is something that has not been true of any public space we've noted to date--in the best tradition of Project for Public Spaces, UNICO has actively programmed the space with a series of summer concert venues (running this year each Wednesday from July 12 through August 9).

    Is there a link to the summer series? Is it widely advertised? Do people attend?
