The excitement for the City of Kenmore’s future is reaching maximum velocity. City leadership is collaborating with employers - such as Bastyr University - and residents to ensure an exciting future as the Puget Sound’s next innovation hub.

Kenmore is investing in the development of a natural health sciences and technology zone. Supported by the availability of an educated workforce and easy access to medical and technology universities, such as Bastyr University and the University of Washington Seattle and Bothell campuses, the zone will attract entrepreneurs working on breakthrough technologies and services. It will also help Kenmore multi-generational businesses expand and fuel the local economy. To accelerate growth of the zone, the City invested more than $100 million dollars in improving infrastructure, removed barriers to development and launched a Business Incubator.

With our prime location at the northern tip of Lake Washington, we’re investing energy in developing a better sense of place in our downtown core. The Kenmore Village development will bring downtown living and retailers to the city center and Lakepointe will one day invigorate Kenmore’s waterfront.

We invite you to come join the excitement for what’s next in Kenmore. Come soar with us.
