Riverview Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Riverview is a neighborhood just west of the Industrial District of Seattle, Washington. The neighborhood is situated along West Marginal Way Southwest to the east, Southwest Holden Street to the south, and Delridge Way Southwest to the west, with no major roadway for a northern boundary. The area is surrounded by parks and heavily wooded streets, making it relatively peaceful and scenic.
The Riverview neighborhood is made up of a relatively diverse mix of races. Median family income in the area is $75,000 per year with an average detached home value of $346,000. The neighborhood has a wide variety of home ages with the oldest being built as long ago as the 1930s. Slowly, many older buildings have been replaced, but many of the older buildings still remain and provide a pleasant reminder of Seattle’s beginnings.
One of the biggest educators in the area is located directly in the center of the Riverview neighborhood. Seattle Community College educates many area residents and is also host to many events throughout the year that are popular with the community. Many employees of the college live within the Riverview neighborhood and, along with the Industrial District employees, represent a large number of Riverview’s occupations.
Off of 12th Avenue Southwest is Riverview Playfield. This area playfield is quite large and provides many of the fields necessary for area youth sports leagues. The playfield is capable of hosting upwards of eight baseball games at a time. The fields are spaced so that the middle can be converted for soccer during that season, as well. The playfield also has two tennis courts that are in regular use throughout the year by area residents. A large playground for the younger children rounds out the offerings at Riverview Playfield.
