The South University District

The South University District holds much vacant land and dilapidated buildings in need of repair. Map shows vacant land.

Map shows the poor quality of many existing buildings:

A “public/private” partnership is to be created to fix this run down area, turning it in to a mixed use, high density residential and high paying medical/business office center with high earning shoppers who will spend their money in the downtown core.

There are many vacant and run-down buildings and empty parcels in Spokane Valley and North Spokane.  The strategy of using tax money and zoning to “urban renew” the central core has been very effective at providing great benefits to a few while the rest of the area languishes. (CBD=central business district)

Did the Valley Mall and other areas require large public/private partnerships to come into fruition or did they do so on their own?
