Eastside (King County, Washington)

The Eastside is the collective term for the eastern suburbs of Seattle, Washington, United States. The name derives from the fact that these communities lie east of Seattle.

There is no formal definition of the Eastside and the exact cities and towns that comprise the Eastside are a matter of dispute. The following cities are included in most definitions: Bellevue, Issaquah, Kirkland, Newcastle, Mercer Island and Redmond. Sammamish is most often grouped with these core cities, so that all of the cities and towns between Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish, as well as the Sammamish Plateau, are included within the Eastside.

The incorporated neighborhoods west of Bellevue are usually considered part of the Eastside. These areas include Beaux Arts Village, Clyde Hill, Hunts Point, Medina, and Yarrow Point.

The Northshore cities of Kenmore, Bothell, and Woodinville can be considered part of the Eastside, as each city has portions that are east of the lake and south of its northernmost tip. On the southeast tip of Lake Washington, Renton is also sometimes included for similar reasons.

The most expansive definitions of the Eastside can include one or more of the incorporated cities in the Snoqualmie Valley, including Duvall, Carnation, Fall City, North Bend, and Snoqualmie.

The cities on the Eastside mostly began as centers of logging or mining in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In the years prior to World War II they became centers of dairy and berry farming. During the post-war boom, they became bedroom communities for Seattle. Currently, the area is growing several edge cities.

Bellevue is the largest city on the Eastside and 5th largest in the state. A major technology center, the Eastside is home to many large high-tech companies, mainly in the software and wireless industries, including Microsoft, T-Mobile USA, Nintendo of America, AT&T Mobility (formerly Cingular), the former Western Wireless (now part of Alltel), Vulcan Ventures, Expedia, Inc., 180 Solutions and InfoSpace. Companies like PACCAR, Puget Sound Energy, Symetra Insurance, Boeing, Verizon Wireless, Google, Yahoo, Walt Disney, and FOX Sports also have national, major divisional or regional offices in the Eastside. The Eastside is also a hub for biotech and medical companies including Amgen, Icos, and Merck. Many local magnates, including Bill Gates, Paul Allen, Steve Ballmer, John Stanton, and Craig McCaw, live in the Eastside's more exclusive cities. The Eastside is also home to many video game and interactive media companies. These include Bungie, Valve Corporation, Sucker Punch, Monolith Productions, Sony Online Entertainment, Warner Brothers Entertainment, Microsoft Game Studios, and DigiPen Institute of Technology.

The Eastside is connected to Seattle by the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge from Medina (State Route 520) and the Lacey V. Murrow Memorial Bridge and Third Lake Washington Bridge from Bellevue via Mercer Island (Interstate 90). It is also served by Interstate 405, a loop route of Interstate 5 that runs to the east of Lake Washington from Tukwila to Lynnwood.

Kirkland hosts the annual Junior League Softball World Series.

Eastside Locks

A building purchased for demolition and redevelopment in the Eastside Locks area.

Eastside Locks (originally known as Ventureast) is a major mixed-use development in the Eastside area of Birmingham, England. It is located next to the City Park development and opposite Curzon Gate. It is alongside the already completed Millennium Point and will cover the area to the rear of the building (now used as a car park) on top of the area alongside the road. It covers an area of 15.24 acres (6.17 km²). A replacement car park will be a multistorey building fronting Jennens Road.

The current site was occupied by warehouse units, the Digbeth Branch Canal, a listed pub and pumping station. On AB Row was a locally listed Victorian former Co-op furniture factory which was severely damaged on January 11, 2007 in a suspected arson attack. The roof collapsed and 75% of the building was damaged by the fire which also destroyed seven arched windows. On January 18, 2007, the façade of the building, which had survived the fire albeit smoke damaged, collapsed in on itself in high winds due to the lack of support it received after the fire was put out.

The area has been hailed as the most important development scheme in Eastside by Birmingham City Council due to the variety of uses it will provide. It has also been billed as being one of the largest regeneration schemes within walking distance of a city centre in the United Kingdom. The canal, which is protected by the Warwick Bar Conservation Area will remain in the development. A Development Framework produced for the area stated that the canal would form the hub of the residential and hotel area. It also stated that the buildings will range from two to eight storeys. It proposed that a square, named Exchange Square, will be located at the back of Millennium Point and sketch designs were provided with it.

Demolition of buildings on the site began in mid-January 2007. Demolition has continued on into early 2008.

The scheme was relaunched at the 2008 MIPIM property show in Cannes, France in March 2008 as Eastside Locks to reflect the canalside character of the site. Goodman, the developers, propose that the scheme will consist of 675,000 sq ft (62,700 m2) of Grade A office space. The rest of Eastside Locks is likely to consist of 325,000 sq ft (30,200 m2) of apartments, shops, leisure space and a hotel. It is estimated that a total of 5,000 jobs will be created as a result of the development.

A proposal for a 175 metre (498 ft) tall observation tower named the "Pinnacle Tower" were presented to the public in early 2006. This will be located on Curzon Road on what was part of the Ventureast site. The tower was redesigned with more detailed designs were presented to the public in September 2006, before being redesigned again and being relaunched as VTP200.

Eastside Park

Eastside Park is a residential neighborhood in the Eastside of Paterson, New Jersey east of downtown. Once the home of the city's industrial and political leaders, the neighborhood experienced a significant downturn as industry fled Paterson. In recent years, people have begun moving back into the neighborhood and are restoring some of the area's historic houses. The Eastside Park Historic District, a state- and nationally-registered historic place, is situated in this neighborhood. The jewel of the neighborhood is Eastside Park and the mansions that surround it. In addition, this section of Paterson once had a large Jewish population and there is still a synagogue left. Eastside Park and what is commonly known as the Manor Section is located in Paterson's 3rd Ward.
