But some forward-thinking buyers and real estate developers are already planning ahead and scooping up properties within walking distance of the new light rail terminal, located at NE 66th St. and Roosevelt Way NE. as homes in Roosevelt are certain to skyrocket in value as the opening of the station gets closer. Considering Roosevelt's proximity to I-5, in less than 7 years, this will be the neighborhood to live in if you want to get anywhere in Seattle quickly and easily.
