Downtown Recovery: Retail's Road Ahead
DSA Virtual Access: Retail’s Road Ahead
Join us on Thursday, Oct. 21 for our next DSA Virtual Access program. This three-part series, presented by Alaska Airlines, will focus on key aspects of downtown recovery and reinvestment.

In October we’ll convene a panel of experts to discuss the future of retail downtown.

Historically, downtown has represented about a third of brick-and-mortar retail sales within the city of Seattle. The downtown retail vacancy rate is now at its highest level since 2009 — 4.5%. In recent months, retail foot traffic has been returning to downtown but is still only at 60% of pre-pandemic levels.

Can downtown Seattle regain its status as a retail hub for the city? How has the pandemic impacted consumer behavior short- and long-term? And what lessons can we learn from other major markets? Join us as we explore all these issues and take your questions.
