With 320-foot, high-rise development potential, the site is perfectly poised to benefit from the blossoming innovation ecosystem developing in the University District as a result of encouraging partnerships between the university and large, local employers.
The University District is experiencing a renaissance. The University of Washington’s exponential growth over the past decade — particularly in the engineering, computer science, and life sciences fields — attracts top minds to the University and to the area.
The neighborhood is reaping the benefits of the University’s growth. Recently approved upzoning will increase density in the area, while a new light rail station will cut commutes in half. The U-District has long been a beloved spot for students in search of books, coffee, and food, and in the next few years it will evolve into the city’s next tech hot spot.
Companies gravitate towards top-tier university locations to benefit from the collective talent pool. This creates an ecosystem of connection and collaboration between burgeoning brainpower and economic strength. Seattle’s University District is an innovation ecosystem that is ripe for growth. Located at University of Washington’s doorstep, the U-District High-Rise Site is perfectly poised to take full advantage of the ecosystem.
The University of Washington’s approved 2019 Master Plan calls for 6,000,000 SF of new development over the next 10 years to support the university and the neighborhood’s exponential growth as it blossoms into an innovation district.
Major companies are invested in the growth & future of the University of Washington and the University District.
