WELCOME TO MERCER ISLAND

WHAT TO EXPECT

In recent years, the city of Mercer Island has made an impressive and significant effort to revitalize the community’s town center. This project was highly successful, and the Mercer Island downtown is now the island’s go-to gathering place for shopping and dining. The condos and apartments in this neighborhood might be a good fit for those who prefer to be within walking distance of their favorite coffee house. Additionally, while residents once had to visit Seattle or Bellevue just to pick up the week’s groceries, Mercer Island is now home to several convenient grocery stores as well as the Mercer Island Farmers Market.

 

UNEXPECTED APPEAL

Mercer Island attracts those who are looking for the ease and tranquility of a suburban neighborhood with close proximity and easy access to both Seattle and Bellevue. Here you’ll find quiet neighborhoods and an out-of-the-way charm. Although over 24,000 people choose to make Mercer Island their home, the general consensus is that the island feels much smaller.
