A Community in Need

Recently listed as the 6th fastest growing neighborhood in America, Belltown is one of the city’s most exciting neighborhoods.

It is the home of thriving retail and entertainment corridors, a cluster of innovative major employers, and a rich musical and artistic history.

Yet disruption to cultural identity, scarcity of workforce housing, rising commercial and residential rents, and underdeveloped public spaces are just a few of the challenges facing the neighborhood.

At the same time, myriad opportunities in Belltown have the potential to profoundly empower Belltowners, Seattleites, and visitors alike to live, work, and play in this neighborhood.

The Statistics

Belltown is the most densely populated neighborhood in Seattle, Washington on land that was artificially flattened as part of a regrading project. Formerly a low-rent, semi-industrial arts district, in recent decades it has transformed into a neighborhood of trendy restaurants, boutiques, nightclubs, and residential towers as well as warehouses and art galleries.
