Group DescriptionPlease share your pictures showing the diverse life within the SoDo neighborhood in Seattle.
SoDo is a neighborhood in Seattle, Washington, that makes up part of the city's Industrial District. It is bounded on the north by South King Street, beyond which is Pioneer Square; on the south by South Spokane Street, beyond which is more of the Industrial District; on the west by the Duwamish Waterway, across which is West Seattle; and on the east by the Metro Busway, beyond which is the International District and the rest of the Industrial District.
SoDo was originally named for being located South of the (King)dome, but since the stadium's demolition in 2000, the name has been rebranded as meaning South of Downtown, and extends a bit further north to include Seattle's downtown stadium district of the Seattle Mariners' Safeco Field ballpark and the Seattle Seahawks' Qwest Field stadium. Qwest Field was built on the former Kingdome site.
SoDo deliberately echoes SoHo in New York City, where, during the 1970s, cheap spaces vacated by departing factories were converted by artists into lofts and studios; SoDo has undergone a similar process but has not experienced much of the gentrification experienced by its putative model.
