Homes for Sale in South Lake Union – Cascade
The south tip of Lake Union is a portion of land, where pioneer David Denny staked claim in 1850’s. From 1895 to mid 1950’s the area saw a growth in logging and transportation of coal, cabinetry and furniture, ship building, Bill Boeing’s first airplane factory, and the first Ford Model T assembly plant west of the Mississippi. And over the last decade, the Soulth Lake Union and Cascade neighborhood is now a hub for life science organizations ~ Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center, Seattle Biomedical Research and also headquarters of Jones Soda Company and now Amazon.
