The valley between Magnolia and Queen Anne is home to trains, industrial yards, storage, services, and a busy traffic corridor, but it is also home to multi-family homes, parks, trails, and many unique businesses. Interbay is growing and changing—over 400 apartments are currently under construction. Interbay is the first phase of a DPD land use study examining a three-mile corridor along Elliot Avenue W and 15th Avenue NW.
