On the outskirts of what were once exclusively considered prime Seattle neighborhoods, North Seattle saw a rapid ascension as a prime investment market after 2012. Greenwood, a refreshingly eclectic and laidback neighborhood within North Seattle, remains a perfect example of that growth.

In addition to private multifamily development, the City has identified Greenwood as a prime area for growth and investment. The Greenwood Town Center, located along 85th Street - the neighborhoods primary East-West corridor - has recently been rezoned to development friendly zones and increase height limits. The re-zone will encourage future development and investment in the neighborhood, providing residents with additional amenities and making the area more pedestrian friendly.

Conveniently, 425 N 85th Development Site is located at the center of this activity. As the area's commercial attractions and community amenities continue to grow, future residents will have endless opportunities to shop, play, eat, and thrive.

Amidst the neighborhood's exciting growth, Greenwood's authentic Seattle spirit shines through. As the local chamber of commerce proudly proclaims, the neighborhood is "Just a little off center." Within a block from 425 N 85th Development Site are local shops, cafes, and restaurants line Greenwood Avenue, and nearby parks such as Greenwood Park and Sandel Park provide sunny green space for community gardens and playgrounds.
