What's Inside...

Burnett Station

Renton has seen a renaissance of its downtown with urban mixed-use projects like Burnett Station. It was developed by Dally Homes and designed by TSA Architects.

In this special section of the Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce, we look at development in the city -- from demands for better quality housing to the use of technology in shaping metropolitan futures.

We explore what is called for in building design in a post 9/11 world, and how "Joe Average" can offer input in designing downtown homes.

We also take a minute to visit areas of growth and revitalization, including Uptown Queen Anne and the downtowns of Renton, Kent and Bellevue.
