Welcome to one of the most vibrant and ever growing neighborhoods in Seattle! South Lake Union's rich history coupled with it's booming residential and business growth makes it one of the most exciting new places to set up residence. Between being the new neighborhood for companies like Amazon and Microsoft and preserving the history of the area with places like the Center for Wooden Boats, it's impossible to avoid the luxury of watching these worlds converge.
Getting around the neighborhood or the city is easy from this transportation hot spot. Buses, bike lanes, ferries and streetcars can move you throughout the city and beyond if you like to travel farther than your feet can take you. Once you get your ORCA card, traveling to nearby neighborhoods like Belltown, Downtown, Queen Anne, Fremont and Ballard can happen with ease.
With all that South Lake Union has to offer, you may not need to venture far from your new home. Cornish Commons residents have easy access to groceries and supplies through stores like Whole Foods, which is located just steps away. If retail is your game, venturing just a few blocks in any direction, residents of Cornish Commons can test drive instruments at the nearby Guitar Center, accessorize your new home at West Elm, and even ascend the indoor climbing wall at the flagship, REI Seattle.
Housed within South Lake Union are some of Seattle’s finest parks, art museums, and music venues. Round out your Cornish Commons experience by seeing your favorite local bands, visiting a gallery, or taking in the clean, Lake Union air.
