Tech and Office
Technology companies and office users are invited to make their home in Burien - a city that’s remained affordable and welcoming. Because most of our businesses are mom and pops, startups and growing companies have an opportunity to make their mark here. Businesses can become part of the planning process and contribute to how the city grows, similar to what Microsoft did in Redmond. This is an opportunity that is hard to find in the Seattle MSA, but you can find it in Burien.
Burien is making it easier for office development by launching a Commercial Development Demonstration Program to allow developers to propose projects outside of the existing zoning codes and receive special use permits.
“The City of Burien was hands-on during the development process and helped us to work through things with Seattle City Light. We had such a great experience working with the City that we looked for an additional development opportunity.”
— Dave Sinnett, American Capital Group
Burien’s Location Offers Fast Connectivity to Seattle and the World
Burien’s adjacency to Seattle Tacoma International Airport makes the city an ideal location for companies with a traveling sales team or those who need to reach investors and partners in nearby California, British Columbia, or anywhere in the world. It’s also an ideal location for businesses involved in distribution, customs and the travel industry. Simultaneously, the city is just 15-minutes from Seattle, offering tech companies, entrepreneurs and professional service companies an opportunity to base their operations near a major metro at a fraction of the cost.
