Seattle's downtown is like no other. Flanked by Puget Sound to the west, amazing views of the bay and the Olympic Mountains can be enjoyed from many of Seattle's downtown streets. Getting to and from downtown is simple via a grid of numbered thoroughfares, I-5 access, and Highway 99, which runs along Seattle's waterfront.
There are several condominium buildings in downtown Seattle, from renovated historic buildings to new-from-the-ground-up construction. Many buildings feature breath-taking views of Puget Sound, the Olympic mountain range, the iconic Space Needle, or Mount Rainier.
Downtown Seattle is comprised of several sub-neighborhoods, each with its own distinct flavor. Belltown, in the north part of downtown, is home to hip shops, restaurants, bars, and clubs. The center of downtown is the main business and shopping district, where you can browse for clothing at Westlake Center, or purchase the freshest produce and seafood at Pike Place Market. Further south is historic Pioneer Square, home to Seattle's sport venues, Qwest Field and Safeco Field. Explore the International District for Pan-Asian culture and dining. Downtown is perfect for those who want to open their doors to the rich experiences Seattle has to offer.
