The Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce engaged Kidder Mathews to update its 2007 Retail Strategic Plan (see below) for the Broadway Retail Corridor. The Corridor runs along Broadway Avenue East (Broadway) and is bounded by East Union Street to the south and East Roy Street to the north, as shown in Exhibit E1. The work includes an assessment of the existing space market, an assessment of current demographics, a contrast of the current retail environment with the past, and makes strategic recommendations as to how the Chamber can affect positive change.

2007 Broadway Retail Strategy
In July of 2007, Gray and Associates completed a detailed study of the retail climate along the Broadway corridor and issued a report of their findings. A component of the Broadway Revitalization Action Plan, this report was sponsored by the City of Seattle. It provides analysis of the existing retailing in the Broadway corridor and recommendations for actions intended to enhance the retail environment there.
