Downtown Seattle is hard to pin down. At once, it is thoroughly modern, stylish, and cutting-edge, but even as mega-corporations perform their not-so-subtle takeover of the area during the day, there are unlimited opportunities for exploration and adventure at night. One thing is palpable — the neighborhood is fast-paced, ever- changing, and energizing to all who visit. In its infancy, Seattle centered around Pioneer Square, but after the Great Seattle Fire Pike Place Market, Denny Triangle, Pioneer Square,, Belltown, the International District, and South Lake Union. Each functions as its own micro-city, with attitudes of 1889, the city's main business and flavors all their own.
Thriving business is alive and well in the heart of Seattle. Amazon, Starbucks, Nordstrom, Facebook and now Compass are all headquartered here. In addition to the hometown giants, the area also hosts many small to medium-sized businesses, and coworking spaces such as Industrious, Thinkspace, and the Riveter that have also taken up residence here. During the day, expect to see long lines of business people slipping out to grab lunch at their favorite food truck or eatery.
This neighborhood is amazing as is, but you'll love the potential of this space. As part of a multi-year project, the Alaskan Way Viaduct removal will make way for a new community space, Pier 62. The renovated pier will provide stunning views of Elliott Bay, the Olympics, and the Seattle skyline, and host community events, concerts, and public art commissions from local artists. It is also expected to feature a floating dock, to give Seattleites access to the water we love so much. Keep an eye on this space!
