“Boomburg” 21st Century

An accessible, vibrant city located on the shores of Lake Washington, Bellevue is commonly known for a thriving business community and world-class shopping.

Bellevue's an international city. In 1990, the number of residents (over five years old) who speak a language other than English was 13.6 percent. In 2010, the number was 38 percent. The Bellevue School District reported that 99 other first languages were being spoken by children enrolled in the district during the 2015-2016 school year.

Downtown Bellevue has a current workforce of about 46,200. By 2030, that total will be 70,300. Currently, 10,500 people live Downtown; that will be 19,000 by 2030.

Bellevue has one of the lowest office vacancy rates in the region, coming in at 7.3 per cent in Q1, compared with 9.6 percent for all Eastside markets, and 11.4 percent for the Seattle CBD.

Within five minutes of Downtown Bellevue you can be paddling along, enjoying the skyline and looking for great blue heron, otters and turtles.
