Magnolia is the site of Discovery Park and the community of restored Fort Lawton homes.This area includes The Center School, one of the top-rated public high schools in Washington. It also includes Seattle's waterfront northwest of Belltown, where F5 Networks’ headquarters are located; between Elliott Avenue and Myrtle Edwards Park.
Expedia.com’s scheduled 2019 move from Bellevue to its new campus along the Interbay waterfront between Queen Anne and Magnolia is expected to ultimately employ 4,500. Many employees will likely seek to avoid long commute times from the Eastside in favor of a Seattle address, helping yet again to drive more demand for housing close to the urban core. With other top employers like Amazon in close proximity, homes here have been in high demand, with the market supply never exceeding five weeks in all of 2016.
