No. 2 Columbia City


Seattle is known for its mix of cultures, but few places in the nation are as diverse as Columbia City. It's also one of the greenest communities in the country. For some reason, everyone wants to build their eco-friendly home here. Despite that, there's also still bargains to be found. That's an impressive accomplishment all things considered. It also doesn't hurt to have Columbia City Theater, Geraldine's and a convenient light rail station at your disposal as well. CC defeated U District easily to get to this round.

No. 10 Pioneer Square


Pioneer Square might be the original neighborhood of Seattle as we know it but that hasn't doesn't much for it in the Curbed Cup so far. Maybe all of the recent revitalization will help. An influx of new buildings, new workers and a focus on preservation are making Pioneer Square trendy again. Also doesn't hurt to have so many good restaurants. On Seahawks, Sounders and Mariners gamedays, the Square has become the place to be for food, drink and merriment. P-Square took down The Junction in the first round.
