> The Bellevue Lifestyle
Whether it’s a waterfront estate, a suburban rambler or a high-rise urban condominium, Bellevue offers homes for every size family at any stage of life.

Bellevue neighborhoods are a diverse mix of upscale urban downtown living and quiet residential neighborhoods. Community involvement and interaction are paramount within all Bellevue neighborhoods, and an abundance of youth, cultural and family-oriented activities are the cornerstone of Bellevue’s lifestyle.

Urban Living at Its Finest
If Bellevue is a city of distinct neighborhoods, there is none as distinct as the booming population of residents in the downtown core.

The number of residents setting up households in downtown Bellevue has grown rapidly in the past 10 years. Developers continue to follow the successful formula of building high-rise condominiums coupled with street-level retail space. The concept brings the Downtown to life after work, with a steady stream of patrons and residents visiting popular eating establishments and taking part in after-hours shopping at some of the best shopping venues in the Northwest.

The city’s downtown has transformed and new condominium and apartment projects continue to add housing options in the heart of the City. Since 1990 the population of downtown Bellevue has quadrupled.  Between now and 2020 the downtown population is projected to increase from about 5,500 to 14,000. This is just over half of the population growth forecast for the city.
