Northgate is a neighborhood north of Greenlake. Named after the first covered mall in the United States, the Northgate Mall. This area has seen a lot of development over the years and even more so lately. Making room and increasing the maximum building height to allow for more high density living. Here you will find many newly built condos and apartments, however you will also be pleasantly surprised by the lovely little neighborhood pockets with local parks like Maple Leaf Reservoir Park and the Kingfisher Natural Area along Thornton Creek. There are not many places where you can enjoy the outdoors while simultaneously being a stone’s throw away from one of the largest shopping areas in Seattle. In addition to the mall, Northgate is home to many fantastic restaurants, bars, cafes, and coffee shops.
