Although it was formed in 2010, the Cordata neighborhood has roots going back towards the formation of Bellingham. Even as the city was coming together, Cordata was a rural residential area where people farmed the land and provided food for themselves and others. A lot has changed in the years that have passed, and today Cordata is one of the fastest growing neighborhoods in Bellingham. Desirable for its proximity to business and solid residential area, Cordata is sought after as it develops and changes with the city. Positioned at the very northern edge of the city, it was formed as the Meridian area grew to include Whatcom Community College and the Bellis Fair Mall. Now, Cordata contains these fixtures of Bellingham as well as the Cordata parkway business sector.
Although Cordata has grown to include a large commercial area, it remains a popular residential location due to the shopping in the vicinity. There are many single family homes, as well as multi family units, apartments, and condos. Some students attending Whatcom Community College choose to rent apartments near campus, or rent houses in groups. Most buildings are mid century builds and are well maintained with simple and attractive landscaping. For families with school age children, the typical school track follows Cordata Elementary to Shuksan Middle to Bellingham High. A brand new park opened this year in the middle of the area with walking trails, a playground, and open grass fields. Convenience is the name of the game, with Costco, Bellis Fair Mall, Best Buy, Department of Licensing, and several grocery stores. I-5 runs right by the area, connecting the neighborhood to the rest of the city and the wider county.
The Cordata real estate market remains fairly competitive as Cordata grows and develops, but housing is comparatively affordable and opportunities to buy can be expected to come up throughout the year. Don’t waste any time contacting a BNP agent about making Cordata your home!
