About Columbia City

Columbia City has the highest Walk Score of any neighborhood south of downtown, including the ever-popular “Junction” in West Seattle. Translation: there’s a lot to do here, and it’s all concentrated in one area. The people here love to support the local businesses. For example, I talked to a guy working at a little boutique who not only lived in the neighborhood but also bartended at the pub next door. In fact, he may have just been filling in at the shop as a favor to the owner. The point is: people get along harmoniously here in Columbia City.

Living in Columbia City

The personality of the area, with its community pride and original historic buildings, has remained intact even through a period of growth and rising popularity.

One reason may be that Columbia City has been designated a historic landmark district in Seattle.

This requires oversight by a board of citizens who make sure the buildings and public spaces retain their historic appearance, and that the character of the buildings in the area is preserved.

This is evident when you take a look around the neighborhood, which is located in the Rainier Valley area of southeast Seattle between Interstate 5 and Lake Washington.
