Seattle‘s Denny Triangle has changed drastically over the past decade. Digging up an article from 1998, the area was called “the almost forgotten Seattle neighborhood north of downtown.” A lot has changed in the last 20 years! One of the fastest growing areas in Seattle’s metropolitan area, the triangle is seeing large growth due to the development of South Lake Union with Google and Amazon’s increased presence with their new offices. Growing into one of the largest technology rich industries in the country, Seattle’s Denny Triangle is on it’s way to start looking like Manhattan.
“Connecting the Retail Core to Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood, Denny Triangle is one of Downtown’s fastest growing neighborhoods with beautiful new developments pushing it forward. This vibrant area seamlessly integrates professional and residential communities with restaurants, bars, unique shops and public parks, all connected via the Seattle Streetcar Line.”
The main project pushing the Denny Triangle’s skyline is the Nexus Condo development. With 26 high rise buildings on the way, developers are hoping to give this a Manhattan type vibe re-branding it as East Village. The demand to live, work, and play within the city is growing as more and more young tech employees are moving to the area.
Although this area is the one of the last areas within the city to get developed, the progress has been in place for the past two decades. Long time residents have grown accustomed to constant construction and increased traffic in this area. Taking a trip down memory lane and looking at this photo of the Denny area from 1998 you can see empty lots that no longer exist. The caption of photo is also reminiscent of ancient history, “Land costs in the area are lower than downtown and full-block sites still can be found.”
