Panel on Innovation Districts Seeks To Explore How To Foster New Ideas Through Urban Planning

Published on October 16, 2015

What have we in Seattle learned about Innovation Districts, as we start to create them in places like Pioneer Square and the U District? Knowing that we are growing, what kind of Innovation District do we want? And frankly, what do Innovation Districts have to do with making Seattle a great place to live and work for everyone—healthy, inclusive, creative, productive, and affordable? Are Seattle’s cranes going to truly foster a better—not just bigger—Seattle? Join us to explore what changes to the built environment mean for the future of innovation in our city.

Startup Week Seattle is quickly approaching, and one of the highlights is the Innovation District Panel, where leaders from around the city will discuss Seattle’s emerging status as an Innovation District.
