A Growing, Vibrant and Accessible City

Tukwila is divided into several neighborhoods, with residents of many diverse origins living in the city. A large commercial center draws workers and customers to the city daily, and there’s an exciting buzz of activity with the confluence of freeways, trains, railroads, and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

Other than Seattle, Tukwila is the only city in King County to be served by the Sounder commuter trains, Amtrak, Link Light Rail, and Metro Rapid Ride buses.


A place to call home

The City of Tukwila is actively engaged with the community to create thriving neighborhoods  that have multicultural residential and business communities with vibrant places where people can live, work, shop, and play. There’s an emphasis on creating self-sustaining, living wage employment opportunities, as well as preserving and enhancing the unique multicultural character of communities.

Recent housing developments include the bustling amenity-boasting 55+ communities Marvelle at Southcenter and Tukwila Village Senior Living. New affordable housing options like The Confluence near the Tukwila Light Rail Station make city living more accessible while preserving Tukwila’s multicultural community.
