Visioning, Planning and Development

The University District is one of the fastest-growing urban areas in the Inland Northwest. Private and public investments are spurring economic development, bringing together research institutions, commercial activities and intellectual capital to drive demand for space, services, and infrastructure. In response, The University District offers a diverse mix of high-quality development options and, together with the state and the City of Spokane, provides access to valuable developer incentives such as partnership assistance, utility installation programs, tax increment financing, and targeted area redevelopment.

The University District Developer's Brochure is a brief, at-a-glance look at The University District's philosophy, approach, infrastructure investments and financial incentives for developers.

A comprehensive planning and community engagement process is underway for the University District's South Subarea. For more information, see this City webpage.
