Burien

In 1884, Gottlieb Burian and his wife Emma Burian, German immigrants from Hussinetz, Lower Silesia, who owned two taverns in downtown Seattle, arrived in what was then known as Sunnydale.  The tiny community was without improved roads or commercial buildings, reached primarily by trails.  Burian built a cabin on the southeast corner of Lake Burien and reportedly formed the community into a town bearing his name, which has been misspelled over the years.

Burien is a young city built from a 100-year-old waterfront community on the Puget Sound. With six miles of shoreline and expansive mountain views, residents take pride in their neighborhoods, actively preserve the marine biodiversity of the area, and protect their public spaces.

Moving to Burien, Washington

Why should I move to Burien?

The City of Burien’s affordable real estate costs as proximity to such major economic hubs as Seattle and Tacoma allow for not just economic growth, but also quality of life opportunities unparalleled in the Puget Sound region.

The city of Burien is easily commutable by Eastside, Seattle, Everett and Tacoma workers.  Highway 509 bisects Burien north to south and 405 leads you to I-5 making it easy to get where you want to go.  Burien is a 15 minute drive to Seattle  and Sea-Tac international airport is a short shuttle ride away.
