The subject property is excellently located right in the heart of downtown Burien and only steps away from the quaint and charming Olde Burien district. This central location is only a few blocks away from the Burien Town Square and offers residents convenient walkability to a wide variety of restaurants, bars, specialty retailers, and services in the surrounding neighborhood. A Walk Score of 92 deems the location a “Walker’s Paradise”, meaning that residents can accomplish most errands by foot. Residents who commute also benefit from close access to an efficient highway system including 509 and 518, which leads to I-5 and I-405, allowing for quick access to other cities and destinations in the region. Public transportation options are also easily accessible with several bus stops in the immediate area and the relatively new Burien Transit Center within easy walking distance, which offers a convenient park-and-ride and express service to Seattle and Bellevue.

Burien has been designated by the Puget Sound Regional Council as one of the 25 regional growth centers that will experience focused urban growth in the decades ahead. The city of Burien and its partners have invested over $200 million to create a new and vibrant place to live, work, shop, and play for the whole family with the completion of Phase 1 of the Burien Town Square. With two more phases recently completed, a four-story Merrill Gardens senior housing complex and a six-story market-rate apartment complex, the Hazle Maes Apartments are perfectly positioned to benefit from the positive growth taking place.

Puget Sound Region

The Seattle area, the nation’s 13th largest metropolitan area, is known for its strong business climate as well as its skilled workforce. Several factors contribute to the region’s thriving business community, from the prevailing entrepreneurial spirit to the education levels and skill sets of its work force. Innovative companies attract high-quality workers who typically possess a high level of education.

Seattle is the largest city in the four-county metropolitan area known as the Puget Sound region. The area’s other major metropolitan cities are Bellevue, Tacoma, Everett, and Bremerton. Surrounding these are growing cities that include Kirkland, Redmond, Kent, Renton, Bothell, and Issaquah.

According to Forbes, Seattle is one of the most popular cities in the country for the millennial generation (ages 20-34), with a growth rate of 20.3 percent since 2007. This is primarily due to the abundance of tech, engineering, and biotechnology employment opportunities in the region, which are highly sought after industries by millennials.
