The thriving waterfront city of Kirkland is well-known for the fusion of its small-town charm and supportive business community. Kirkland residents say that location, quality of life, size, and the physical environment are the top four reasons why they live here. This should be no surprise since this beautiful city is located on the water, is famous throughout the state for its walkability, and is a quick 20 minute drive to three of the Northwest’s most prosperous and robust economic centers: Seattle, Redmond, and Bellevue.
Kirkland is another great addition to the Eastside’s potent economic prosperity, as apparent from its mix of small businesses, larger corporations as well as several rapidly growing businesses. Costco is just one international business that was established in Kirkland, hence the “Kirkland Signature” brand. Evergreen Health is Kirkland’s community hospital, one of the region’s top public medical centers, and is the city’s largest employer. Although it is headquartered in California, Google’s campus in Kirkland is the city’s second largest employer.
Like most of its eastside counterparts, Kirkland is relatively affluent, but dependent in large part on the nearby technology firms such as Microsoft and Google. The cost of living is 28.1% greater than the national average. The average household income in Kirkland is $101,164, and the poverty level is 56.8% less than the national average. The median house value is $626,600 and the median monthly rent is $2,200. Kirkland offers many different types of apartment rentals in many different apartment communities; from the classic mom-n-pop 10 unit complex to the Melrose-Place-style luxurious gated community.
The city’s location on the shores of Lake Washington make it an ideal venue for breathtaking views and gorgeous parks. There are 40 parks in the city and nearly 10% of the city is designated for parks and open spaces. The city of Kirkland has been instrumental in the success of the Green Kirkland Partnership, which supports green business practices and promotes community environmental stewardship. Families come to Kirkland to be a part of the Lake Washington School District as the district’s standardized test scores rank in the state’s top 10 percent. The U.S. News and World report even rated Kirkland’s International Community School as the 29th best high school in the nation. In total, there are 25 public schools and 5 private schools in Kirkland, and the student-to-teacher ratio is 21:1.
