welcome to Central District

Seattle's Central District (also known as "the CD") is a historically Black neighborhood and has been evolving a great deal, especially in recent years. We surveyed residents of the neighborhood, and locals described the neighborhood as "diverse, central, bike-friendly, residential, interesting, close, expanding, and walkable."

“I feel like I barely left Capitol Hill but have more space than I could have hoped for [in the Central District].” - Max D.

From the Neighbors

“Central is a good all around neighborhood and has something to offer everyone which I think is unique for most neighborhoods. The location in the city also allows for easy commuting all over while keeping prices still somewhat reasonable.”

“Proximity to the downtown core and ease of commuting without all the hassle of people and traffic like other neighborhoods.”

“Location with easy access to downtown, SLU, Lake Washington, Capitol Hill, etc.”

“Central Cinema! They do cheap movies from current to yesteryear and monthly have these hosted Adult Sing Along parties that are an absolute blast! Full bar and menu to have a bite to eat while you watch a movie. Super fun!”

WHAT NEIGHBORS ARE SAYING

“I initially wanted to be on the other side of Madison in the Stevens area but I’m quite happy where I ended up. I’ve made great friends with many neighbors and walk my dog and look at the flowers. Can walk to the new PCC, the Central Co-op, Trader Joe’s, or the Madrona Farmers Market on Fridays.” - Lindsey W.

WHAT PEOPLE DISLIKE

“Lack of options for groceries but that is QUICKLY changing! :-)” "I can't quite walk to Capitol Hill, but the Ubers are super cheap."

COMMUTING FROM THE CENTRAL DISTRICT

We asked Central District residents about their commutes—where they commute to, how they get there, and how long it takes. Here’s what they said:

“I drive to Redmond for work and it takes me between 15 and 30 minutes.”

“I commute to Downtown (but haven’t had to commute since I moved here), and I’m planning to use a combination of Uber, bus, walking, biking, and sometimes driving when I do need to go into work.

“I go into Redmond for work and both the 520 Bridge and I-90 are the same distance away, but with I-90 you have to go through Bellevue. Even when I take 90, as long as I don’t literally drive through rush hour it’s 30 minutes or (usually) less. Once the East Side Link Light Rail opens up with the Judkins Park Station, Central District will be super convenient.”

“I go Downtown for work via bike or bus and it takes me between 15 and 30 minutes.”

“I commute to Capitol Hill via car and it takes me less than 15 minutes.”

DINING PARADISE

Central District is home to destination dining. We surveyed Central District residents and asked them what their favorite eateries are. Here are a few of our clients’ favorites:

Woodshop BBQ, Meet the Moon, Medmix, Fish Guys Poke Bowls, Reckless Noodle, Central Pizza, Standard Brewing, Skillet, Neighbor Lady, “food trucks at Chuck’s Hop Shop,” Seattle Fish Guys, Tacos Chukis, Feed and Co., Lowrider Cookies, Ezell’s, Taco Chukis, “any of the many Ethiopian places,” and people absolutely raved about Broadcast Coffee!
