How many jobs are crammed into downtown Seattle?

The area employs roughly 200,000 people — just slightly less than Bellevue and Redmond combined.

This is just one of the interesting data points included in the new Downtown Density Report published by the Downtown Seattle Association and the Metropolitan Improvement District.

Here are some other highlights:

  • The population in downtown neighborhoods grew five times faster than the rest of the city from 1990 to 2010
  • Downtown contributed 57 percent of the total taxes collected in Seattle in 2012
  • Downtown represents just four percent of Seattle’s land area, but accounts for 41 percent of the city’s jobs
  • 33 percent of downtown residents walk to work, compared with 6 percent for the rest of Seattle
