A Bright Look at the Future

And now for something completely different: New York Times columnist David Brooks writes about optimism for America in a commentary about, “The Next Hundred Million: America in 2050,” by Joel Kotkin. Part of Kotkin's optimism stems from the new urban design decisions that are being made today, with the revitalization of urban downtown cores and the trend towards suburban town centers. This creates a healthy, locally-focused, pedestrian-friendly environment, which no surprise is good for the economy, earth and people alike.

At One Main Street we're already ahead of that trend, scoring a near-perfect 91 on in the most pedestrian friendly part of vibrant downtown Bellevue. From One Main Street, you're part of the friendly neighborhood of Old Bellevue with neighborhood business owners that know the names of their regulars.

Bellevue Square, downtown workplaces, the transit station, casual and fine dining, movies, bowling, billiards, comedy, day spas, parks and the Meydenbauer Bay waterfront are all within a mile of your front door, making it possible to stay in your own neighborhood for almost everything you want and need. Which is what this article is talking about - the value of finding connections where you live.
