About Downtown Spokane
National industry leaders are choosing to bring their workforce to Downtown Spokane, to an urban environment that provides an easy and accessible live/work/play lifestyle. Known for its rich shopping experience, its inspired restaurateurs, award winning microbreweries and winemakers. Spokane is a vibrant metropolitan center serving as the cultural, economic, educational and social hub of the Intermountain Northwest. Between 2013 and 2020 over $300 million will be invested in public infrastructure and facilities in downtown Spokane.
Spokane is a community of get-it-done dreamers and downtown serves as home to an embarassment of rich, historic architecture. In 2019, downtown Spokane hosted 3.9 million visitors with a $1.658 billion economic impact. Punctuated by a powerful urban river gorge, second in size only to Niagara Falls, downtown Spokane has direct access to year-round recreational opportunities including the 100-acre destination park, Riverfront Park; the 37-mile Centennial Trail; and the Spokane River for kayaking, fly-fishing, rafting and paddle boarding. In 2014, Spokane was ranked by Outside Magazine of the country’s Best Towns.
Access to Spokane’s restaurants, shopping and recreational activities is easy. Spokane offers a hassle-free antidote to the friction of modern living with an overall average commute time of less than 20 minutes, and with direct access to over 50 miles of urban bike lanes accessible public transit. A newly planned six-mile bus rapid transit route planned through the center of downtown will continue to interconnect the region’s livability, healthcare, commerce and education.
