Development Opportunities in Bothell

Bothell's combination of big city demographics and small town feel support and sustain the downtown's commercial, retail, and residential growth. An economic study developed by The Concord Group in summer 2009 notes that the city can capture one million square feet of current projected 10 year (2010-2020) demand for new retail, office, and residential development in the downtown district. With the City's investment of over $150 million in public infrastructure, that potential expands. In fact, in 2012, the City has already reached a milestone with one-third the overall private development goal having been met. More than $207 million in private investment has been placed, leveraged by $150 million in public investment. The new developments equate to an estimated 1,500 units of downtown housing and over 144,000 square feet of commercial office space.
