Downtown Seattle has evolved into one of the most dynamic urban centers in the country. A robust job market, a beautiful natural environment and a vibrant shopping, arts, restaurant and cultural scenes continue to attract new residents. Today more than one in 10 Seattleites — 88,000 people — live in the center city. Children under 18 are the fastest growing demographic downtown. That population has doubled since 2010.
