Ravenna

Ravenna

Located in NE Seattle, Ravenna is a residential neighborhood once famous for its huge old growth trees and also home to several businesses including University Village — an open-air lifestyle shopping center offering a unique formula of locally-owned boutiques and signature national retailers. U Village is a regional destination for fashion, furnishings and unique gift items also featuring distinct coffee shops, restaurants and eateries.

Named after Ravenna, Italy, many of Ravenna’s residents are graduate students and professors at the University of Washington. Cowen-Ravenna Park, located near University Village and the walking or biking route connecting Green Lake to the Burke-Gilman Trail is a popular feature of the neighborhood.

Well known for its bungalows, Ravenna also has many beautiful Craftsman homes. Other architectural styles in this popular NE Seattle neighborhood include Tudors, Ramblers and Contemporary homes. Ravenna has only a few condominiums, which is surprising considering that the University of Washington lies just next door. The neighborhood is similarly deficient in townhomes. If you are looking for a neighborhood that is rich in single family homes, then Ravenna is an excellent choice.
