  • what you’ll fall in love with

    White Center is one of the most diverse areas in King County. From the eclectic food options to the people you’ll meet out and about at the beautiful parks in the area, it’s heaven for those who are ready to step outside the Seattle bubble.

  • market

    Like many Seattle neighborhoods, White Center is changing and growing with the rest of the city. White Center still represents fantastic value; you truly get SO much for so little. Usually the type of convenience that you can find in many White Center locations will cost you 3x the price in Seattle. A real estate “deal” can still be found in White Center, and with great bus options straight into Downtown Seattle and South Lake Union, more and more people are moving to this community.

  • What to expect

    White Center offers what people miss about “old” Seattle: that blend of old school charm and a grungy feel to its character. Known as “Rat City” as a result of the military using the area for their Relocation and Training Center during WWII, the area has claimed the nickname with pride and is home to the locally famous Rat City Rollergirls. Get ready to develop your own sense of pride in the neighborhood as you discover your next favorite restaurant or your favorite picnic spot.

  • real talk

    White Center has had a reputation of being “no man’s land” in the past, but this perception is quickly changing as more people move to the area and embrace its vibrancy. People who move to White Center or spend some time there quickly realize it has a long list of perks and easy access to great amenities—gorgeous parks, all the shopping opportunities you need, the aquatics center, Southgate Roller Rink, easy freeway access, and some of the best food around town.
