College Town Kent: Before & After

Downtown Kent has experienced a remarkable transformation over the last 5 years. With over $130 million in new investment, students, residents, and visitors are rediscovering Kent and its many surprises - both old and new - that make the downtown "unmistakably Kent."

To really appreciate the dramatic change in the downtown skyline, the City assembled a series of before and after pictures and lined them up in a PowerPoint presentation that captures the downtown revitalization in all it's glory.

Check out Kent Downtown Before and After (PDF); it's a nice stroll through time in downtown Kent. The file has a lot of pictures, so please be patient as it loads.
