Located north of Seattle’s downtown core, Belltown is well known for its dining and shopping scene as well as its walkability.
The neighborhood is also one of the city’s densest, with a 2014 report found that Belltown has a population density of 47,000 people per square mile.
It’s no surprise then that Belltown offers an abundance of mid-rise and high-rise housing options when it comes to new construction. BuzzBuzzHome’s Market Snapshot tool shows that there are 1,505 condo and apartment units currently under construction, with 841 units scheduled to be completed in 2015.
Check out a few of the neighborhood’s new construction highlights below!
