Bellevue Is the Region’s Second Fastest-Growing Neighborhood

Just behind South Lake Union, Bellevue has recently become the region’s second fastest-growing neighborhood. Downtown Bellevue’s population has grown by more than 5,200 from 2010 to 2017, a 73 percent jump. The increase can be drawn back to the zoning that has allowed for multifamily housing to expand in the downtown area. The new apartment towers allow for a population density of 18,000 people per square mile, equal to South Lake Union’s density.
