Our Retail Mix...

The University District is home to some of Seattle's character defining small businesses. The eclectic mix of local unique retailers, restaurants, bars, cafes and student oriented services make the neighborhood a destination for many. The Market Area for the U District spans most of North East Seattle and will expand with the addition of a Light Rail Station to our Commercial Core come 2021. The UDP has implemented a strategy for the curation of our business district to allow for the neighborhood to thrive through a mix of complementary and non competitive businesses.

Below are some resources for existing businesses and operators looking to join our mix.
