Broadway Retail Study by Capitol Hill Chamber

Michael Wells of the Capitol Hill Chamber presented the updated Broadway Retail Study to members of the Champion earlier this month. (We posted it 4/14 on the other site.)

Read it here. Broadway Corridor Retail Strategy Report

The Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce engaged Kidder
Mathews to update its 2007 Retail Strategic Plan (2007
Report) for the Broadway Retail Corridor (Corridor). The
Corridor runs along Broadway Avenue East (Broadway)
and is bounded by East Union Street to the south and
East Roy Street to the north, as shown in Exhibit E1. The
work includes an assessment of the existing space market,
an assessment of current demographics, a contrast of
the current retail environment with the past, and makes
strategic recommendations as to how the Chamber can
affect positive change.
The Corridor represents one of the strongest neighborhood
retail markets in Seattle. The Corridor itself contains
approximately 465,000 square feet of retail space, about
60,000 square feet of which is less than fi ve years old.
The Corridor’s strong rental rates ($30-$40 per square
foot) and low vacancy continues to drive development.
There is currently 16,500 square feet of retail space under
construction within the Corridor, and at least one additional
project under consideration.
