The Bothell Florist to Renovate and Rename as "Emerald City Florists"
The Bothell Florist Bouquet There are lots of big changes happening at The Bothell Florist! The building is undergoing a major renovation as well as the store.  The current location will be divided into two retail spaces and The Bothell Florist will occupy the space next to Julios.


The Bothell Florist will also be changing the name of the store to unite all 3 of their current retail locations. The new name will be "Emerald City Florists". 


The Bothell store will be the first to undergo this transformation with the Bellevue Crossroads and Melrose Seattle locations following suit. 


The Bothell Florist could not be more excited for the future of downtown Bothell and are thrilled to be a part of this next chapter! 


They are 100% open and operating during the construction so please excuse the mess and remember you can order online 24/7 at

City of Bothell News
$6.75 Million Grant to Help Kickstart Multiway Blvd.
CityLogoColorThe City has been awarded a $6.75 million grant from the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) for its Multiway Boulevard Phase II construction. These funds, combined with anticipated proceeds from the sale of downtown property, allow the City to proceed with the $14 million Phase II project. Construction could begin in the spring of 2016 and be complete in about 15 months.
The $25 million Multiway Boulevard project will enhance Bothell Way from State Route 522 to NE 188th Street. The Boulevard is a key component of Bothell's downtown revitalization plan. Phase I of the project completed landscaped medians, a side access lane with parking and sidewalk on the west side of Bothell Way from NE 183rd Street to Reder Way. Phase I recently was awarded a Greenroads Bronze Rating, recognizing the project's contributions for exceptional mobility and environmental standards. Phase II of the project will complete the Boulevard, realizing the City's goal of joining the new development on the west side of Bothell Way with the historic core on the east side. The improvements will also improve downtown traffic flow and add parking
