Pioneer Place is a mall that covers four blocks with dining, parking, retail stores and Pioneer Tower offering tax free shopping. Four buildings connected by underground sections and skywalks make up Pioneer Place Mall with Third, Fifth, Taylor and Morrison Streets tying it together. The two phases the mall was built in are reflected in the names of the two main buildings Pioneer Place 1 and Pioneer Place 2 which are the Atrium Shops and Rotunda Shops respectively.
The sections each have four floors including the basement. The food court, Cascades, can be found below Pioneer Tower underground. Facing the Fifth Avenue portion of the Portland Transit Mall Pioneer Place 1 is between the platforms for MAX Light Rail. The anchor stores of Pioneer Place Mall are Saks Fifth Avenue on the ground floor of Pioneer Tower with departments in Pioneer Place 2, Tiffany and Co. and Regal Cinemas. The cinema is on Pioneer Place 2's top level and has six screens.
