bright heritage

The Brighton is located in Seattle's Rainier Valley, on Rainier Avenue South, halfway between Columbia City and Rainier Beach. The Metro bus stop is half a block away, an easy ride to shopping, post office, libraries, community centers, galleries, and restaurants.

The Building and Grounds

The Brighton is set back from the street, and there is ample free parking. The park-like grounds include a grassy park, rose gardens, and a P-Patch style garden with raised beds for interested residents to plant as they choose. A greenhouse was added in 2012.
