MAKE YOUR LANDING IN AMERICA'S MOST DIVERSE ZIP CODE
High above the shores of Lake Washington, minutes from the casual dining and boutique retail of Columbia City, Vista '63 takes you on a journey to explore a rare mix of urban entertainment pleasures and healthy outdoor recreation opportunities.
A favorite access route to the residence is along Lake Washington Boulevard, an artifact of Seattle's Olmsted legacy that circulates through Seattle's quiet residential lakefront and offers the city's most scenic commute to downtown. Its roadway curves along the natural contours of the ancient lake, wending its way past marinas through Seward Park, Leschi, Madrona and Madison Park.
The neighborhood's namesake Seward Park comprises 300 acres of old growth forests, a 2.4-mile bike and walking path, an amphitheater, a native plant garden, an art studio, miles of hiking trails and recreational beaches. Several blocks from Vista63 is a collection of locally-owned shops to be joined shortly by Third Place Books, which will include a bookstore, cafe, and possibly a pub.
To the west, Columbia City - referred to by some as America’s most diverse zip code - sports a Walkscore of 98. Local and national media have recently lauded this urban village. Neighborhood fashion and art store Andaluz, for example, is a beloved institution and highly rated in travel guides, while Geraldine’s kitchen serves up an array of American comfort food in a retro-diner atmosphere. the neighborhood hosts hip live music in a historic vaudeville theatre at the Columbia City Theater and Bourbon bar, and first-run movies in a neighborhood cinema. The Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is conveniently accessed from Columbia City by way of the light rail or a 20-minute drive.
To the north, the Pike-Pine Corridor presents trendy restaurants, cafés and galleries - giving way to the stately mansions and parks of Capitol Hill. This is the gateway to downtown Seattle, the region’s economic powerhouse. Amazon, Google, Microsoft, The Gates Foundation, and many other large employers contribute to the creative and financial vibrancy of the robust local economy. Not surprisingly Vista '63's Columbia City environs have been recently lauded by the Seattle Times as a social and culinary landing site for employees of these technology firms.

Launch pad for recreation & urban pleasures
Columbia City still feels like a microcosm of the city itself, a gumbo of art galleries, bike shops, yoga studios and butchers where it’s easier to find homemade tamales...than a macchiato."
