Come along with us as we transform Aurora Square into Shoreline Place. Our goal is to create shopping and living experiences that meet the needs of the community and reflect the unique characteristics of the area. Shoreline rolled out the red carpet for Sears when it opened in the 1960s – now it’s time to create the next hub.
When we put out a call for community members to help envision Shoreline’s new hub, more than 6,000 residents responded with ideas that helped shape the design of Shoreline Place. This tight-knit city just north of Seattle is focused on new, higher-quality restaurant and retail choices paired with vibrant open spaces and modern living options.
Driven by Seattle’s cost of living and Shoreline’s proximity to major business centers in Seattle, Bellevue, and Everett, Shoreline’s population and average household income have grown and are projected to continue increasing.
In the next four years, Sound Transit will open two Link Light Rail stations near Shoreline Place, providing new direct access to the University District, Capitol Hill, downtown Seattle, Sea-Tac airport, and the eastside of Lake Washington, including Bellevue and the Microsoft campus.
Shoreline Place sits along Metro’s Rapid Ride E line and the Interurban Trail. Seattle and Snohomish County shoppers can also easily drive to Shoreline using a variety of major north-south corridors including I-5, SR 99, Greenwood Avenue, and 15th Avenue NE.
SEEKING GOOD NEIGHBORS.
Our little corner of Shoreline already cozies up to some great neighbors. Central Market is a part-time community hub, full-time grocery store. Shoreline Community College, just a few blocks away, educates over 6,000 students. The WSDOT Regional Office Headquarters will have 750 onsite employees by 2021, and the staff already there is eager for walkable dining and retail options. Shoreline is special. This 10+ year phased redevelopment of a former Sears property represents that spirit.
