The Rail, located northwest of West 2nd Ave.  & Christensen Drive, is Anchorage’s newest mixed use project.  Situated on over 11 acres of Alaska Railroad land, this project will include luxury townhomes, apartment suites, retail/restaurant space, an outdoor performance venue and parks connected to the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail.  Visitors and residents will be only steps away from Ship Creek fishing, festivals, markets, local restaurants and stores.
This is truly a unique project for Anchorage.  An all-local-team based in Anchorage and made up of private developers, engineers, architects, builders,  local government and the Alaska Railroad have partnered to bring this innovative project to the Anchorage market.   The Rail,  when completed, along with other Ship Creek and Port of Anchorage redevelopment plans will compliment and expand on the existing downtown Anchorage lifestyle. 


The first housing project in The Rail is Downtown Edge, which will consist of up to 35 quality townhouse style condos in a modern industrial design.  Due to the natural North facing slope of the property all homes will have spectacular views overlooking the historical location of Anchorage’s “tent city”, the railroad, inlet waters and Mt Susitna. 

More than just a place to call home, living at Downtown Edge is about being a part of a downtown community and enjoying all that that downtown Anchorage has to offer. This walkable neighborhood connects you to the places you love.


At the northern edge of downtown Anchorage and in the heart of the Ship Creek Redevelopment zone,  Downtown Edge is only steps to all that the area has to offer in every season.  Check out our EXPLORE ANCHORAGE map for a few of your options within a 5 and 10 minute walk.     



The three uniquely designed floorplans in Downtown Edge effectively utilize all square footage.  The Open floor plans allow for the maximum use and extension of the living space to the outside decks with views of the railroad, and inlet and mountains.  Each thoughtfully designed home provides professionally designed kitchens, floor to ceiling windows and attached garages.  Prices starting at $430,000.



The modern industrial design seeks to create an attractive balance between rusticity and sophistication through the use of warm, natural materials.  Large floor to ceiling windows take advantage of the natural light and inlet views with visual excitement of the surrounding railroad and shipping yards.    Open living spaces and large decks allow for all occupants to interact using the space efficiently.
