Factoria is a neighborhood located in southern Bellevue, Washington. It’s a distinctive community because it’s a major commercial hub in the city. Its name sounds a little like the word “factory” and during the late 19th century and early 20th century it was planned to be a large industrial area, but that plan never came to fruition. It did have a few factories, but the manufacturing plants were short-lived. Since the 1960’s, Factoria was (and still is) a retail community that attracts residents and visitors alike.
