Paul Allen a notamment investi plus d'un milliard de dollars dans des projets régionaux, notamment la création du pôle technologique South Lake Union, à Seattle, où s'est établi le géant Amazon, et la mise sur pied du Allen Institute for Brain Science, après que la maladie d'Alzheimer eut emporté sa mère. En football américain, son équipe des Seahawks de Seattle est l'une des équipes phares du championnat NFL, comme les Trailblazers de Portland en NBA.

Il possédait aussi une collection d'avions anciens et a financé la première fusée non gouvernementale à avoir effectué un voyage dans l'espace.
