"Close to all the action"
Albion Place is full of medium-sized condo complexes with a few, older, single family homes tucked in between. It also borders a commercial area, although these structures are disappearing quickly in favor of condos. It is super-convenient to downtown Seattle, and is within walking distance to the fun, quirky, Fremont area with lots of shopping, restaurants, bars and clubs. Great place for active people who want to live close to everything Seattle has to offer in a relatively quiet, safe neighborhood. One low-income housing project already exists on this street, and one is being built currently, as the Fremont neighborhood association is committed to providing affordable housing within this VERY competitive, expensive area. Overall a great place to live with decent parking options. Very quiet at night, although can get very busy on weekends during the summer when Fremont festivals are happening. Quiet neighbors appear to be mostly young professionals or grad students attending local University of Washington. Not many kids, and the nearest park is not within easy walking distance for children. Extremely close to the Burke-Gilman trail for bike-riding and access to Lake Union and GasWorks Park.
