The Eastlake Neighborhood

Eastlake is one of Seattle’s most iconic neighborhoods, boasting the famous flotilla of boat houses on the lake, surrounded by an eclectic mix of historical townhomes, modern condominiums and colorful apartment buildings. It is a neighborhood with a rich and distinctive history and feel. Starting as little more than a floating shantytown for migrant workers has transformed over time into a diverse and electric neighborhood.

It’s perfectly positioned at the center of Seattle’s urban and cultural hub—UW, South Lake Union, Downtown and Capitol Hill, giving residents and visitors alike a unique and active springboard towards accessing work and play within the city. It's minutes away from Amazon’s 30,000+ employee campus in South Lake Union, and adjacent to many tech and biotech companies that make up a large part of the city’s employment infrastructure, such as Adaptive Biotechnologies and Immune Design Corporation. Local coffee shops, boutiques and other businesses also thrive alongside large chains.

One of the things unique to Eastlake, is the culture and entertainment. The area boasts a strong Walkscore of 80. Chains and local small grocery stores share space along the venerable Eastlake Avenue, and nestled alongside are a number of electric and quirky coffee shops like Le Fournil Bakery. For nightlife and something a little heartier, residents and visitors alike have a flurry of colorful choices ranging from scenic waterfront eateries to local bars and trendy evening cafes.

Transportation is varied and accessible. Eastlake provides quick access to 1-5, 520 and Highway 99, and public transportation is active and thorough via Metro bus Routes 71/72/73, all of which provide service to the downtown CBD and the University of Washington.
