Lynnwood is the economic heart of South Snohomish County. A bustling commercial center, Lynnwood thinks big. Its Lynnwood City Center project is an ambitious 20-year plan to create a dynamic place to live, work and play by blending residential, retail and businesses with open space in a pedestrian-friendly, transit-supportive environment. The project’s 400-acre, mixed-use site is the result of a public/private partnership that will blend a total of 1.5 million square feet of retail space, 6 million square feet of office and commercial space, and 4.8 million square feet of residential areas with open public spaces that will encourage commerce, neighborliness and transit use.

Parts of the City Center plan include the $100 million expansion of Alderwood Mall, a regional shopping mall, a $32 million convention center and a $64 million transit center. The long-awaited Lynnwood Convention Center is scheduled for completion in 2005. This state-of-the-art conference facility will offer more than 60,000 square feet of exhibition, conference and meeting space, serving businesses and events throughout Western Washington.

Nearby, a dramatically expanded and upgraded Alderwood Mall is scheduled for completion in for holiday shopping in 2004. The mall is expanding from 1,050,000 square feet to 1,386,000 square feet, with additional shops, restaurants and movie theaters.

The Lynnwood Transit Center, a joint project of Sound Transit, Metro Transit, Community Transit, and state federal and city partnerships, is located in the southeastern corner of the City Center, offering 1,200 parking spaces, HOV ramps to I-5 and improved local street circulation. This new transit hub of South Snohomish County is scheduled to be completed in 2004.

Of course no one who drives past Lynnwood on I-5 can help but notice the continuing construction at the I-5 and 196th St. SW interchange. A proposed pedestrian bridge is scheduled for 2004, and additional traffic improvements are currently under consideration.

Lynnwood is a business and recreational destination, offering 1,200 hotel rooms for business and leisure travelers, more than 300 acres of parks and open space, tennis courts, ice and roller-skating arenas, and movie theaters. The city’s historic Interurban Trail provides almost four paved miles for biking, walking and jogging, connecting to additional trails in Everett and Mountlake Terrace. Scriber Lake Park, a 20-acre bird sanctuary, is located in the heart of Lynnwood’s commercial district.

The Lynnwood Recreation Center is open daily and offers a complete aquatics program, racquetball courts, a weight room and recreation programs for all ages. Lynwood and Meadowdale athletic complexes are host to more than 325 adult softball teams during the season. They also feature lighted baseball and soccer fields, a track, and sand volleyball courts. Lynnwood’s 18-hole municipal golf course and pro shop are open to the public all year.
