Booming neighborhood

“The Ballard neighborhood is always bustling with an extremely active vibe and is the ideal backdrop for a vintage Seattle experience,” said Brad Reisinger, division president of the Pacific Northwest for LMC, in a prepared statement. “We’re excited to add to our presence in the area with Valdok, which we believe will serve as a top-tier living option with its spacious layouts, cozy ambiance and suite of smart-home features.”

Valdok is located within close proximity to Ballard Bridge and 15th Avenue NW, which offers access to downtown, South Lake Union and other key employment centers. Ballard also has five bus routes from the King County Metro that run through it, in addition to the 20-mile Burke-Gilman Trail that serves as a transportation corridor for commuters.

Nearby attractions include Ballard Locks, Golden Gardens Park, the Nordic Museum, Bergen Place Park, 17th of May Festival, Larsen’s Danish Bakery and Ballard Farmers Market. Dining options include Asadero Ballard, No Bones Beach Club, The Walrus and the Carpenter and San Fermo.
