Eastlake is one of Seattle’s oldest and best-defined neighborhoods. It is east of Lake Union (hence the name “Eastlake”), south of University bridge, west if Interstate 5, and north of Mercer Street. With about 4,000 residents and 4000 people who work here, Eastlake is a pleasant jumble of houseboats, single family homes, apartments, condos and large and small businesses.
Eastlake became identifiable as a neighborhood in the 1890’s. With the opening of the University bridge in 1919, travel through Eastlake was encouraged. Eastlake became a streetcar neighborhood of small homes and apartments,houseboats, and small businesses. Along the Lake, industrial uses grew up. Boeing’s first factory was located at the foot of Roanoke street. In 1962 the I-5 freeway came roaring through the neighborhood, defining Eastlake’s eastern edge and changing the neighborhood forever.
In the early 1970’s, Eastlake was rediscovered and residents set about conserving it through the 1977 City Council adoption of Eastlake Goals and Policies, and in 1999 by City Council adoption of the Eastlake Neighborhood Plan (a link is provided in the column at right), prepared by a committee of local residents, business and property owners,and other local stakeholders.
