Sometimes referred to as “Jet City,” Renton, WA has markedly developed over the past decade. “The Landing,” a family-friendly pedestrian neighborhood, drastically changed the demographics of the city and helped to revitalize the downtown area. On the southeast shore of Lake Washington and at the mouth of the Cedar River, Renton has long been an important fishing area for Native Americans but most people will know “Jet City” as the home of Boeing and the final assembly point for the Boeing 737 commercial airplane. There are endless cultural and recreational opportunities in Renton as it is a convenient 25.4 minute commute to downtown Seattle and beautiful 2.5 hour drive to the Mount Rainer National Park, where many residents enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, snowshoeing, sledding, and more. On a beautiful day, you can view the Cascade Mountains in the east and the Olympics in the west.
Many businesses are choosing to locate in Renton because of the economic diversification of the region and a highly educated workforce. The population has increased 90.7% over the past 14 years, and now approximately 95,448 people call Renton home. Over 87.4% of residents have a high school education, 29.4% graduated from university, and 9.4% of the population have a graduate or professional degree. Only 4.3% of the population is unemployed which is 2.3% less than the national average.
Jobs from Boeing, Providence Health, PACCAR, Kenworth, as well as the popular video game company, Wizards of the Coast, attract young and eager workers to the old coal-mining town. Spanning 32.5 square miles, the award-winning Renton School District serves over 13,000 students in preschool through twelfth grade. Five of the 21 schools in the district are designated as "Outstanding Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence" and the District received the prestigious national "What Parents Want" Award.
