Bellevue / Spring District / Kirkland / Redmond

Consistently ranked as one of the top best cities to live in the US, Bellevue is recognized for its excellent public schools, well-educated workforce and it’s highly-rated healthcare network. Bellevue is centrally located between Seattle and the Eastside suburbs, making is a great area to live in regardless of which side of the 520 floating bridge you work in.

Bellevue Square and Old Bellevue are both highly popular for its major malls (Bellevue Square, Bravern, Crossroads) and great restaurants (Din Tai Fung, Bis on Main, I love Sushi, Wild Ginger etc). The highly acclaimed Bellevue Downtown Park is a 21-acre oasis of green in the heart of Bellevue. A half-mile promenade, bordered by a double row of shade trees, and a stepped canal braings you to a 240-feet wide waterfall that cascades into a reflecting pond.

Amazon, the big player in South Lake Union, are fast expanding into the Eastside, with the leasing of multiple buildings in downtown Bellevue. With the recent development in the new Bellevue Urban, better known as the Spring District, we can expect more companies, amenities, restaurants and transit to move into the neighborhood. 

 

Kirkland is a vibrant waterfront destination, with an unparalleled blend of art, dining and outdoor recreation activities. In fact, no other city in the Puget Sounds boasts of as many waterfront parks and beaches as Kirkland.

Kirkland is also home to two award-winning hotels (Heathman, Woodmark), numerous art galleries and renown restaurants (Bin on the Lake, Anthony’s Homeport, Trellis, Le Grand Bistro Americain, Bottle and Bull). The French Bakery has a mouth-watering selection of pastries, breads and desserts, located within walking distance of downtown Kirkland.

With the opening of Kirkland Urban, renowned tech companies including Google and Tableau (now owned by Salesforce) are now rapidly expanding their footprint in the area. 

 

Redmond, the bicycle capital of the Northwest, is perhaps better known as the home of Microsoft and Nintendo. The safe environment, highly-rated Lake Washington school district and the numerous restaurants within walking distance of downtown Redmond, makes this city one of the top cities to live in WA.

Redmond is also home to Marymoor Park – a 640-acre of land, complete with 48-acre off-leash dog park, picnic area, baseball fields, rock-climbing walls as well as an 11-mile trail that leads all the way to Bothell.
