Greenwood and Phinney team up for the Annual Art Walk in May. Greenwood also puts on the Greenwood Classic Car & Rod Show in June. If that is not enough, it is just a stone’s throw from nearby Greenlake, as well as all the park activities in Phinney Ridge. For those who enjoy shopping, Northgate Mall and Seattle’s first two-story Target store are only a short drive north.

Located just to the north of Phinney Ridge and northwest of Greenlake, Greenwood continues to experience redevelopment and growth. Conveniently located with easy access to I-5 and more affordable housing, investors and residents have recently been improving the homes in this area and the character of this neighborhood.
The rental housing in Greenwood consists of a large number of smaller, affordable single-family homes developed from the 1940s to the 1970s and a mix of older and newer small- to medium-sized apartment and condo buildings. Most of the new development has occurred in a close radius to the center of the retail core at the intersection of Greenwood Avenue North and North 85th Street. New retail, condominium and apartment development has revitalized this area.
Affordable housing with reasonable access to Downtown and the Eastside have made the Greenwood neighborhood a popular spot for many. Once off the main arterials this neighborhood consists almost exclusively of single-family homes. Housing in these neighborhoods is mixed and can offer very affordable single-family rental home options.
