Burien is a young city built from a 100-year-old waterfront community on the Puget Sound. With six miles of shoreline and expansive mountain views, residents take pride in their neighborhoods, actively preserve the marine biodiversity of the area, and protect their public spaces. Housing ranges from starter homes to high-end homes, condominiums and apartments of all sizes, including senior living.
Residents and business people alike love the convenience of Burien’s hub location and great connections. You can drive north to Seattle in about 12 minutes, east to Sea-Tac Airport in five minutes, and south to Tacoma or east to Bellevue in 30 minutes. The central location means that jobs and entertainment are convenient, the parking problems are elsewhere and a slower pace prevails in residential neighborhoods.
Burien has been busy rebuilding and reinventing itself. Downtown’s major arterial received a makeover with widened sidewalks, benches, landscaping and old-fashioned lampposts. In 2009, Burien Town Square opened its first buildings, a joint King County Regional Library and Burien City Hall, in a multi-story condominium/retail building. During the same time, Town Square Park was completed at the center of the development. Town Square has reshaped the downtown area into a central gathering point for the community.
