Seattle Office Space Listings
Much of Seattle’s office space is located downtown in the city’s fairly compact central business district. Amazon and Nordstrom are two of the several Fortune 500 companies located in the downtown area. Notably, the oldest continually operational farmers market in the country — Pike Place Market — is also located downtown and is a top tourist destination. Other companies headquartered downtown and elsewhere in Seattle include Starbucks, Avanade and Alaska Airlines.
Seattle is home to one of the highest-educated talent pools in the country: As of 2019 U.S. Census Bureau data, roughly 44% of residents age 25 or older had earned at least a bachelor’s degree. The Emerald City is also home to several institutions of higher learning, including the University of Washington (UW). One of the oldest public universities on the West Coast, UW was founded in 1861 and now houses one of the largest library systems in the world, as well as a diverse and modern assortment of laboratories and research facilities. In fact, UW is one of the highest-ranked public research universities in the United States, particularly recognized for its medical, engineering and scientific research, in addition to highly competitive computer science, information, engineering, architecture, law and business schools.
Notable higher learning institutions in and around Seattle also include Bellevue College, Northwest University and the University of Puget Sound. Undoubtedly, the wide variety of graduate programs offered across all local institutions contribute greatly to Seattle’s remarkable talent pool. Naturally, the city has grown into a key hub for startups and ambitious entrepreneurs, as well as major companies. In fact, Seattle office space has long been home to the headquarters of major brands such as Amazon, Boeing, Microsoft and Nordstrom Department Stores.
