“University Village is a great outdoor shopping plaza with a lot of franchise & boutique stores. I remember coming here ages ago when it was more complicated and confusing, but it's so vibrant now!! I love the atmosphere and layout too!”

Rosie C, Visitor

Once a declining 1950s era strip mall, University Village has become the leading lifestyle center in the Pacific Northwest. Over the last 16 years, GGLO has helped transform University Village, evolving the center through multiple large-scale renovations, new structures as well as tenant improvements and public space. “U Village,” as it’s known in local parlance, features nearly 60 locally owned businesses along with premier national retailers, each with a unique identity.

Characterized by high quality buildings, strong neighborhood identity, connections to the community, pedestrian orientation and an authentic sense of place, University Village exemplifies our mission of design for the human experience.
