Business Development

Tukwila is one of the most business-friendly cities in the region. The city hosts over 2,200 businesses in a wide variety of sectors such as retail, aircraft components, health care, food manufacturing, data centers and information services. Over 42,000 employees work in Tukwila in a variety of functions such as research and development, manufacturing and sales.

Anchored by Westfield Southcenter, the largest mall in the Pacific Northwest, Tukwila offers many shopping and dining options, and with over 100,000 visitors daily, is one of the premier retail destinations in the Puget Sound region.

Tukwila’s future is bright with development opportunities. In the Southcenter District, the city is creating a brand new walkable neighborhood between the mall and transit station, revitalizing Tukwila International Boulevard with Tukwila Village as a catalyst development, and recently constructed a new road that will open up the southern end of the city for hundreds of acres of new development.
