If there’s one thing that the recent Seattle has shown us, it’s that people are in love with the Emerald City. Seattle has exploded in a very short period of time and it shows no sign of slowing down. Pretty much every day, it seems like there’s an exciting new change to explore. At Cyrene, we couldn’t be more thrilled to live here. Much of the amazing transformation has happened right in the backyard of our Downtown Seattle apartments. But, it’s not just our neck of the woods that’s attracting the droves of folks. There are many other aspects that are helping Seattle become one of the most popular cities in the world.

1. A Booming Economy

Unsurprisingly, the economy is making an appearance on the list. Seattle’s growth is incredibly impressive. While major corporations such as Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, and Google are a beacon for professionals all over the globe, it’s not just tech giants that are shaping the landscape of the Emerald City job market. The area is also a haven for startups and entrepreneurs, resulting in innovation in multiple industry sectors. What’s more, with the housing market following suit in the expansion, downtown and the urban core have become conducive to young singles and families alike.

2. The Culture

It’s hard to describe a Seattle culture in a few words; however, we’d say it’s mainly about a balance of nature and city life. After all, it’s not often that a major metropolitan area is surrounded by some of the most beautiful natural environments in the world. In addition, Seattle is arguably a model of diversity and inclusion. From museums and installations to public programs and events, a respect for community and multiculturalism is evident everywhere you look. It majorly influences the type of art, music, and overall attitude that you find in the City.

3. The Delightful Weather

It’s true — it tends to rain here. But, it doesn’t affect Seattle’s growth in any way. In fact, it’s the good kind of rain that all us locals love. Even on the wettest of days, you won’t find too many folks using umbrellas. We all understand that it’s the rain that gives life to the beautiful greenery that permeates the entire City. And, it makes for the most enjoyable summers which are stunningly gorgeous, sunny, and warm. The weather is unbeatable. Even during a cool, rainy season, it’s not unusual to have some sunshine and mild climate.
