Work has begun on the Spring District, a 36 acre mixed-use urban neighborhood. The 16 city blocks near the intersection of SR 520 and I-405 will ultimately feature commercial, residential and retail including hotels, restaurants and shops.
The $2.3 billion project is one of the largest urban development projects on the West Coast. Work is being done in phases, with the eastern and southernmost blocks developed in Phase One, including office and residential buildings as well as the central park space. Development will eventually move north towards the future East Link rail station.
