U-District: A Highly Walkable Urban Neighborhood With Lots of College Charm

Celebrated for its energetic and eclectic vibe, University District (fondly known as U-District) is a charming urban neighborhood. Home to the University of Washington, streets bustle with student life. And professionals thrive here, too, with big employers like Amazon, Boeing, Google and Microsoft headquartered in the area. Rising eight stories above the streetscape on 8th Avenue, Lightbox offers residents an ideal modern living experience. Excellent eateries. Hip boutiques. Lively bars, pubs and clubs. And outdoor water sports, like kayaking, paddle boarding, and sailing, are in your backyard too. Farther afield from the Emerald City, there’s no shortage of outdoor activities. It’s all close by, all here for you to enjoy.
