One of the fastest developing neighborhoods is Northgate, located just north of Green Lake and slightly east of I-5. In fact, it’s name comes from the first covered shopping mall in the U.S. Northgate Station is filled with national brands you know and love. The area is a mix of condos, townhomes and single-family homes, all within walking distance of great shopping and community activities. Another bonus of Northgate: easy access to the new Sound Transit light rail station will take you wherever you need to go to Seattle, especially the University of Washington and SeaTac International Airport.
