Will Capitol Hill be the fastest growing neighborhood in the fastest growing U.S. city?

There’s no saying — yet — if Capitol Hill is the fastest growing neighborhood in the fastest growing U.S. city. But we know the latter half of that equation is true.

Seattle Times data guy (and sometimes neighborhood DJ) Gene Balk has alerted the city to the latest population estimates from the Census Bureau. Among the nation’s top 50 most populous cities, estimates say Seattle grew the fastest in 2013 — clocking in with a 2.8% jump vs. 2012.

You’ll also note we turned in a nearly 7 point jump vs. 2010.

In the top 100 biggest cities, Seattle weighed in just ahead of… well, a bunch of places you probably wouldn’t want to live. Sorry, Henderson City.

You can view the Census Bureau’s report on the update here. We’ll have to ask DJ Gene when we’ll have an idea on how fast Capitol Hill is growing. If not this year, maybe next. There’s certainly going to be room for growth.
