"A residential street in an industrial neighborhood"
South Brandon Street is one of the few in the SODO district that has homes along it, though none that you'd really want to live in. For the most part, you have Artco signs, Minuteman Press, NW Sign Supply and a couple of machine and fabrication shops, but there are a few homes along the way. They have quite a bit of green, but that's mostly due to overgrown yards and poorly kept trees and bushes. The homes look on the verge of becoming condemned, blending in nicely with the dirty industrial buildings. For now, the proximity to downtown is probably the only thing residents of this street have going for them, but when the Alaska Way Viaduct gets shut down for repair/removal, a few thousand cars will be traveling the neighborhood along 1st and 4th Aves. on their way to work in downtown Seattle.
