About Queen Anne

Adjacent to the Seattle Center and the quickly evolving waterfront, Queen Anne has it all. Top-rated restaurants, bars and proximity to some of Seattle’s best activities. The list of things to do keeps growing, too, with the renovation of the former Key Arena to make way for an NHL team starting in the 2021-22 season. To the west, the waterfront is undergoing a multibillion dollar transformation which will bring more eateries, retailers and fun activities over the next several years.

Dubbed “Uptown” by some, Lower Queen Anne has become a major neighborhood for office-using employment. Notable firms headquartered in the area include Expedia, which relocated to Amgen’s former campus on Elliott Bay from Bellevue. The spillover of high tech companies from nearby South Lake Union has also contributed to the local economy, with Amazon, CTI Biopharma and Omeros leasing a significant amount of space.

The recent onslaught of renovations has contributed to higher vacancies as landlords cater to a high-end tenant base. Average rent is well above the metro average, but tenants can find a significant discount to nearby downtown Seattle and South Lake Union which are some of the most expensive neighborhoods in the Puget Sound region.
