Mapping The Evolution Of Stone Way

View as Map

So many neighborhoods and areas in Seattle are in the midst of renewal, revival, change or whatever you want to call it. The changes might be for better and they might be for worse, only time will tell. Stone Way, between 34th St. & 45th St., is a microcosm of this evolution.

The stretch was, up until recently, a commercial divide between Fremont and Wallingford full of outdated buildings, aging retailers and hidden cafes. Not anymore. Now, mixed-use complexes and forward-thinking collectives are remaking this road as a vital home-base for Seattle's next generation. We took a stroll up and down the block to plot out the recently-added and soon-to-be-added businesses & buildings that are making this happen. Keep a close eye on them, and Stone Way, because they're just going to keep evolving.

Goodbye Michaelo Espresso. In your place, a mixed-use building with 280 units, 274 parking stalls and ground-level retail will be coming soon, assuming it passes muster with the review board. Construction slated to begin in 2014.

Long gone is the Stone Way Pit. Filled in on top of it is the Prescott, a mixed-use apartment complex with easy access to Aurora Avenue.

Locals might not like the idea but when Walgreens moved in a couple years ago, they helped tie together the "gateway" to Wallingford.

8. Harbor Union Wallingford Apartments

Seattle, WA 98103

Harbor Union's yet-unnamed project will consist of 149 residential units with 6K square-feet of ground level retail space and approx. 150 below-grade parking spaces. It's going to massively-change the look and feel of that street corner.

9. Noble Apartments

The 93-unit Noble was deemed such a good investment, R.D. Merrill bought it for $27M soon after it was completed. It includes nearly 6,000 square feet of street-level commercial space.
