Downtown Seattle continues to grow. In 2012, the number of apartment units under construction rose to 7,317 units in 46 projects, up from 3,010 units in 17 projects in 2011. Renovation projects dominated the retail development environment Downtown including combination of Nordstrom Rack’s new space in the Metro level of Westlake Center, Pike Place Market renovations and a new Target store. With continued development – including a high concentration of new projects in the Denny Triangle and South Lake Union neighborhoods – it’s an exciting time to be Downtown.
