King County Metro route 124 is starts downtown and winds south through many industrial neighborhoods: along Airport Way across the freeway from Beacon Hill, doing a loop around Georgetown, and running down Marginal through Tukwila and into Seatac.
The challenge with the 124 is it only hits a few of pockets of residential—in Georgetown, where much of the available housing stock is increasingly newer townhomes (rentals are a different story), and as the route goes through Tukwila and Seatac and gets closer to its terminus at the Tukwila International Boulevard Station, where it connects with Link Light Rail for a faster option to downtown.
The 124 hits a lot of stuff besides residential neighborhoods, though, most notably Boeing Field and the Museum of Flight, but also industrial employment along Airport and Marginal. While residential listings might be a little more concentrated than in other maps, it’s a route that gets a lot of stuff done.
We’ve found six notable homes along the route, from condos to to townhomes to single-family homes.Read More
