Abutting the Elliott Bay of the Puget Sound, downtown Seattle is the city’s powerhouse. It’s where you’ll find one of the longest-running farmers markets in the country, Pike Place Market — with the iconic “Public Market Center” neon sign — the Seattle Space Needle, Seattle Art Museum, Paramount Theatre, and dozens of other attractions. With shopping and restaurants on nearly every corner, Seattle is one of the most walkable cities in the country — and what a beautiful walk it will be. Grabbing an apartment downtown likely means snagging a spot in a skyscraper that comes with either a view of the distinctive Seattle skyline or the Puget Sound.
If you're not sure how much an apartment will cost, the table below shows the average price by size.
