welcome to Eastlake

This smaller Seattle neighborhood is nestled in between Lake Union and I-5 and offers a little bit of everything when it comes to housing. You'll find older single-family homes, older condo buildings, newer condo buildings, new townhomes, and floating homes.

“Eastlake is in close proximity to everything—you have quick access to SLU, Downton, Capitol Hill, U-District, Fremont, I-5, 520 Bridge, etc.”

From the Neighbors

“While we’d love more walking access to bars, breweries and restaurants, we like [the Eastlake neighborhood] is cozy and not too popular with crowds because that’s what helps it retain its charm. And Capitol Hill is an 8-minute drive away!”

“You can grab your floats/kayaks/paddle boards and launch yourself into the water.”

“It would have to be the location and the amazing connectivity it offers to literally anywhere (considering that you can just hop onto I-5 within 2 minutes) yet how it’s away from the bustle of Downtown Seattle and South Lake Union with such easy lake access! Even in times like the ongoing pandemic, Eastlake has offered a great landscape for neighborhood walks/runs!” - Janhavi B.
“Tiny and beautiful lakeside parks like Eastlake Boulodrome Park.” - Cyril J.


We surveyed Eastlake residents about their favorite places to eat, and Pomodoro Ristorante Italiano was a clear winner! People also loved Mammoth and say it’s a great casual hangout, and they also especially love Poke Square.


People absolutely rave about Armistice Coffee Roaster! “Armistice [has] amazing coffee, laid-back yet chic decor, clean, and friendly baristas. We also take home their ground coffee beans!” - Janhavi B.


We asked Eastlake residents about their commutes—which Seattle neighborhood they commute to, how they get there, and how long it takes them. Here’s what they said! “I commute to South Lake Union/Downtown Seattle for work. I take Bus 70 which takes about 15 minutes, but also biking is super easy and SLU is actually just a 20-minute walk away from where I live in Eastlake.” “I work in South Lake Union and I can drive, Uber, bus, or bike to work in under 15 minutes. Or I can walk to work which just takes about 30 minutes.
