Fremont: Quirky and Creative. Like You.
The self-proclaimed Center of the Universe, Fremont is among Seattle’s most colorful urban neighborhoods, distinguished by its particular brand of cheeky irreverence. Only a mile square, Fremont houses a surprising number of Seattle’s most cherished greenways, public artworks, landmarks and cultural institutions. Where else will you find a 16-foot tall statue of Lenin transported from Slovakia, a colossal Troll sculpture (appropriately located under the Aurora Bridge), the flagship Puget Consumer Cooperative (PCC) supermarket, and a 200-vendor Sunday flea market that has flourished since 1990?
The 17-mile-long Burke Gilman Trail presents opportunities for running, biking, roller-blading and strolling. Passing four blocks from Fremont View, it unfurls for 17 miles toward the Ballard Locks on one end and Woodinville’s wineries on the other. Fremont Peak Park, the neighborhood’s best kept secret, attracts those seeking a secluded and artful spot for private picnics or contemplation.
Live, work and play in Fremont, with Seattle’s most walkable blocks. Enjoy being altogether free of a car or using it infrequently to easily access big-box stores via northbound Aurora Avenue. Cliffside communities place you near the region’s most coveted employers and global creative talent. Our residents have enjoyed “next-door” employment at nearby Adobe, AdReady, Brooks Athletic, Google, Getty, Microsoft, Tableau, the University of Washington, and Zillow, among others.
