Ballard

Ballard is proud of its Scandinavian Heritage and holds the largest Norwegian annual parade outside of Norway Ballard on May 17th. Its vibe has changed since it was named one of the Hub Urban Villages designated in Seattle’s Comprehensive Plan. As such, the area is targeted for increased residential development. The current low-density multifamily typology is the modern square box; see how many you can spot!
