About the Belltown Neighborhood of Seattle, WA
Belltown is a neighborhood in Seattle, Washington, located on the city’s downtown waterfront. It is named after William Nathaniel Bell, an Illinois farmer who settled in the area in 1851. Belltown was originally a low-rent, semi-industrial arts district, but it has transformed into a vibrant neighborhood of trendy restaurants, boutiques, nightclubs, and residential towers in recent decades.
In the early 1900s, the Denny Regrade project flattened Belltown’s hills, making it more accessible to the rest of the city. This led to a period of rapid growth, and Belltown became home to a variety of businesses, including hotels, apartments, theaters, ballrooms, taverns, union houses, and light industry.
In the 1920s, Belltown became known as “Film Row,” as it was home to the regional offices of many major film studios. This industry declined in the mid-20th century, but Belltown remained a vibrant commercial district.
In the 1970s, the city upzoned Belltown as a high-rise residential district. This led to a wave of new development, including the construction of many luxury condominiums and apartment buildings. Today, Belltown is one of the most densely populated neighborhoods in Seattle, and it is home to a diverse mix of residents and businesses.
In addition to its residential and commercial development, Belltown is also home to a number of cultural attractions, including the Seattle Art Museum Olympic Sculpture Park, the Belltown Performing Arts Center, and the Seattle Aquarium.
Belltown is a dynamic and ever-evolving neighborhood. It is a place where people from all walks of life come to live, work, and play.
• Store items you’ll need most often at the front of the unit.
• When you pack your storage unit, create a center aisle for access to all items.
• If you’re storing tables and other furniture, remove legs and store tabletops and sofas on end, to save space.
• Pack books flat, not standing on end (which may cause damage to the spines). Books are extremely heavy, so don’t pack too many in one box.
• Old photographs tend to curl over time. To keep them flat, place them between two pieces of cardboard and tape them together.
• Never over-pack boxes. Overfilled boxes may rupture and topple when stacked.
• Clean and dry appliances. Keep refrigerator doors slightly ajar and use the space inside these items for additional storage.
• Use furniture drawers for small and delicate items. Bubble wrap and packing paper are excellent for these purposes.
• When packing toys or smaller objects, remember to fill boxes completely, stuffing open areas with plain newspaper to prevent collapsing when stacked.
• Common sense and state laws determine what may be stored. You alone control access to your storage space. Live animals, perishables, liquids, explosives, flammable liquids and fuels, toxic materials, or other items that need a controlled environment are NOT permitted.
• Always use high quality locks on your unit. Locks are available for sale-just ask your site manager for a recommendation.
• Use trashcans to store shovels, hoes and rakes.
• Mattresses should be covered and stored flat on level surfaces.
• Use protective covers and treat wood surfaces before storing.
