South Lake Union is transforming before our eyes from new residential towers to updated transit to the construction of Amazon's new 11 building campus. The neighborhood is reviving with new restaurants and emerging shops. Nestled between I-5, Queen Anne and Seattle Center SLU is an amazing place to live with near perfect walk and transit scores and still "very bikeable". House boats line Lake Union and are the primary source of residential homes in the area. Quirky, beautiful and unique, the Seattle House Boat is iconic. Living here places you at the heart of one of Seattle's newest renewed neighborhoods.
