Mercer Island

Mercer Island is primarily a single-family, high-quality residential community with a commercial business district and multi-family dwellings concentrated at the northern end of the Island. Its close proximity to both Seattle and Bellevue makes island living convenient. Today, Interstate 90 connects Mercer Island with Seattle and Bellevue. The regional Sound Transit light rail network is being extended along the northern bridge all the way to Redmond, and is slated to open in 2023; Mercer Island will have a station.

The City owns approximately 475 acres of parkland and open space, maintaining the island’s natural beauty. The result is quiet, forested neighborhoods, complemented by stunning views of Seattle, the Cascade Mountains, Mount Rainier and Lake Washington.
