When you’re in Bellevue, Washington and seek the urban lifestyle of a city-slicker, Factoria may fit the bill.

Although the commercial concept of Factoria in Bellevue, Washington took more than a hundred years to manifest, the commercial center coupled with multi and single family homes and schools is now a hot spot for residents of Bellevue.

Long ago, the idea for Factoria was conceived as an industrial center that would house factories and other businesses, including a stove factory that never produced a single stove. Multiple efforts failed in times past to convert marshlands to shopping grounds, but with the 1960s establishment of the intersection of I-90 and I-405, the area finally blossomed as a residential, shopping and business destination. Now, Factoria is a favorite place to work, shop, eat, play, learn, and live. Single family homes in Factoria range from as low as $200,000 to well over a million dollars.

Factoria is comprised of cinemas, grocery stores, office buildings, retail businesses, and restaurants. The area is home to five department stores that include Target, DSW Shoes, Old Navy, Nordstrom Rack, and more. Additionally, the commercial center features Kids Quest, a children’s museum. The Factoria Marketplace Mall offers a total of 54 stores. To accommodate all the consumers and employees, Factoria is equipped with 2,500 parking spaces.

Factoria is surrounded by Bellevue, Newcastle, Mercer Island, and Eastgate. Neighborhoods in the area include Mockingbird Hill and Monthaven. There are three schools servicing the community including Newport High School, Tyee Middle School, and Puesta del Sol Elementary.

The juxtaposition of commercial and residential properties make Factoria, a mixed use community, a unique destination in Bellevue, Washington, combining the best of both worlds. Factoria provides urban living at its best with convenient access to dining, boutiques, shops, specialty stores, and interstate access.
