Recently, along with nearly 1,300 other attendees, Schwabe attorneys attended the Downtown Seattle Association’s State of Downtown event. At this one-day conference, we participated in interactive sessions regarding the latest economic indicators shaping downtown Seattle—including employment and residential growth, retail sales and private investment, and insights on what trends lie ahead.

Our attorneys were on hand with opening remarks for multiple breakout sessions. Some highlights included:

  • Shareholder Chris Howard gave opening remarks for Lidding I-5: Creating 18 Acres of New Space in the Heart of Downtown
  • Chief Executive Officer Graciela Gomez Cowger gave opening remarks for Retail Evolution: Getting Urban Retail Right in the 21st Century
  • Shareholder Milt Reimers gave opening remarks for Downtown’s Next 10: Predictions and Projections for Our Future
  • Shareholder Larry Costich gave opening remarks for Breaking the Mold: Four Innovative Projects Taking Shape and Reshaping Downtown
