You Can Walk There: Map Out These Six Spots

On the edge of everything, Spire is situated at the nexus of local culture, world-class architecture, and culinary gems, minutes away from Amazon’s headquarters, abundant greenspaces, and the waterfront. Boasting a Walk Score of 99 out of 100, and just a seven-minute walk from the South Lake Union Streetcar at the Westlake Avenue & 9th Avenue stop, it’s easy to see why it’s considered a “Walker’s Paradise”. Here, you can experience the best of both worlds. Conveniently located where Belltown, South Lake Union, and Denny Triangle meet, Spire offers homeowners the perfect location to explore Seattle on foot and retreat home.


Map out your next urban adventure. Stroll to the farmer’s market and indulge your inner foodie. Plan a picnic in the park surrounded by towering sculptures. Experience the waterfront in the late afternoon for breathtaking sunset views and to see the city light up. Share some love for music and the arts at Seattle Center. Meet-up for swanky hand-crafted cocktails at Happy Hour. Set sail across Lake Union or admire the seaplanes soaring above.


Lace up those sneakers and get into a Seattle frame of mind. In[Spire]d living is within reach. Put some spring into your step with these six spots to walk this season…


KEXP Gathering Space, 472 1st Avenue North/ .8 miles or 16 minutes – A community hub for music lovers, this gathering space is an inviting spot to enjoy free Wi-Fi and a cup of coffee from Caffe Vita. Shop for your favorite vinyl records at the cozy Light in the Attic Record Store while listening to live radio, and watch for upcoming free performances.


Pike Place Market, 85 Pike Street /.8 miles or 16 minutes – Get inspired by local food producers and entrepreneurs in this beautifully designed destination with 9-acres of public space to roam. And then, order weekend brunch or a biscuit and an orange infused mocha … just ‘cause you can.


Olympic Sculpture Park, 2901 Western Avenue/.5 miles or 11 minutes – Pack your go-to Pane Pane sandwiches or swing by De Laurenti for all your favorites. Grab a picnic spot on a grassy knoll set among stunning sculptures to enjoy superb views of Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains and Mt Rainier. Continue your walk to Myrtle Edwards Park trail along the waterfront.


Center for Wooden Boats, 1010 Valley Street / .9 miles or 18 minutes – Get your steps in by doing the Lake Union Loop in the morning. Walk along the dock and marina enjoying all the boat activity or look up to catch some sea planes soaring. Make it a museum day with MOHAI or Center for Wooden Boats where you’re invited to dive into some Pacific Northwest Maritime history. Double down on your work-out and rent a rowboat or sail Lake Union. Sundays you can often find free rentals!


Lower Queen Anne (Uptown), 1 mile or 20 minutes via Denny Way – It may not be Happy Hour, but it’s always Cocktail O’Clock in this neighborhood just north of Spire. Why not tap a few neighbors and walk there? Make your way through a line-up of some of Seattle’s best bars that feature some serious small bites for the best flavor pairings starting with Tyger Tyger, followed by COBA, the Tin Lizzy Lounge, The Masonry and The Sitting Room.


Climate Pledge Arena, 334 1st Avenue/.6 miles or 12 minutes – Catch a live concert or performance; cheer on the Seattle Kraken or WNBA’s Seattle Storm. Located at the base of the iconic Space Needle within Seattle Center, this is the first net zero carbon certified arena in the world – a complete redevelopment of an historic landmark, originally built for the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair.
