West Seattle, wa
Named for the junction of California Avenue and Alaska Street, Alaska Junction is the primary route to connect from West Seattle to downtown. This locational advantage has grown the neighborhood into being the defacto center of the peninsula – taking the title from North Admiral. The area experienced significant growth in the 1900’s after it was connected to downtown Seattle via trolley – a common story in Seattle.
This all means that Alaska Junction is now the commercial center of West Seattle, with a plethora of shops, activities and breweries. There are multiple condo buildings in the vicinity while single family homes stretch to the east and west.
