The Fast Lane
The Northgate neighborhood has always been moving. But today’s highs are nothing compared to the late 40s when the explosion of both population and bank accounts conspired to create the need for places to live – and places to spend. At that moment in time, Seattle looked north. Slightly north, anyway. Annexing the area between 85th and 145th streets and converting the old cranberry bogs and maple groves into a neighborhood. In 1950 Northgate became the country’s first shopping center to be called a mall. And as the area has continued to grow and prosper – with the opening of the Link Light Rail station and renovation of Northgate Mall itself – the Northgate area is perfectly positioned for the next big boom.
