Bellevue sits in Washington State in the Eastside region of King County and is the 3rd largest city in the Seattle metropolitan area. It has numerous nicknames from "edge city" to "boomburb" and has a population of about 145,000 inhabitants. Its' name is derived from the French words for "beautiful view" and its' high-rise skyline will certainly give you that. It is consistently ranked near the top of the ladder for livability (the latest is that it is now home for Bill Gates) and one of the best places to launch a business. It's the 6th wealthiest community out of 522 in the state of Washington based on a per capita income with notable companies such as Expedia, T-Mobile and Valve Corporation calling the city home. Coworking has hit the streets of Bellevue to cater to its culturally diverse and tech savvy locals as an alternative to sipping espresso in a cafe and doing nothing.
Business is booming in downtown Bellevue and yet it retains a unique small-town feel with eclectic and woodsy neighborhoods, a vast network of parks with nature trails to walk or run and beaches where you can dip your toes in the water. Its' public schools are placed in the top 20 in the country, so there is a lot of potential and enthusiastic youth running amok in its' streets. Bellevue people are some of the most highly educated in the state with over 66% having a bachelor's degree or higher.
Coworking appearing in Bellevue's streets is no surprise considering the amount of innovative tech savvy talent hanging out in the streets of gleaming buildings and green parks.
