We refer to the northwestern most area of Seattle as Northgate, named after the mall in this area. The easiest way to find Northgate is to take Interstate-5 Exit 173.  Exit 173 exits to Northgate Way the main east / west arterial in the Northgate area.  Northgate Mall is just east of the exit.

 

This area of Seattle is within the city limits and is located east of I-5 and five miles north of downtown Seattle. It is bordered to north by the City of Shoreline and the City of Lake Forest Park.

Shopping

Northgate Mall was the first covered shopping mall in the country opening its doors in 1950. In 1997 the mall underwent a significant expansion which enclosed the open walkways keeping the winter weather from the shoppers in the mall.  Plans are in the works for another major Neighborhoods map is loading......renovation which will add some 100,000 square feet to the mall. Currently the mall offers over 130 specialty stores anchored by popular department stores and a large food court.
