Economic Competitiveness

Strengthening Downtown as a Center for Jobs, Innovation and Investment

Downtown Seattle is the economic anchor of our region. DSA is committed to creating a thriving downtown while also working to ensure downtown and Seattle remain affordable for a range of people. Our dedicated in-house research team tracks downtown’s economic health and provides expert analysis for our members, potential investors and the media. Through our retail recruitment program, we encourage an inviting mix of retail and restaurants. And our business resource team gathers feedback from downtown business owners to help improve their neighborhoods for customers, employees and the bottom line.
