Hi there,

I live in a condo on Harbor Ave facing terminal 5, and I haven’t noticed too much more noise that’s directly related to the construction. However, between the rail cars going back and forth to the Nucor plant, and summer traffic to/from Alki, the overall noise level is definitely noticeable, especially in the summer. There’s also quite a bit of grit in the air – certainly more than I’ve noticed in other places I’ve lived. All that being said though, if you can install an air conditioner and keep the windows closed, it isn’t too bad.

Good luck!
