Great but expensive

The building is new brand and has great amenities. The gym is on the 31st floor with an amazing view! They have 24hrs Concierge service which is great, especially if you are a working professional and have lots of packages coming to your place. The only down side is that the rent is very expensive, especially if you own a car.

Great place, but too pricey

You get a lot of amenities, the location is walking distance to downtown and capitol hill, and everything inside the unit is new. They have a gym on the top level with a beautiful view, which is something I use. The down sides are that parking is 200 a month, and I live in a studio which is 1600 per month :(.

New Building with Great Ammenities

We moved into this building in May and have been in love with it. Everything is brand new and the common spaces are great. There is a game room with large tv's, a pool table, and a shuffle board, as well as the entire top floor. The apartments are a little on the expensive side, but it is very nice being so close to downtown.

Great Place to Live

I'm a student of Seattle University and have been living here for about 6 months. The apartment complex is brand new and very close to campus. The staff keeps the common areas very clean and you feel like you're living in a really nice hotel vs. apartment building. The 31st floor common are is the absolute best...no need to go to the Space Needle when you have this view. Only issue is that even though it is a secure garage, people have had their car/bikes vandalized. Hopefully management is working on that.

Happy Home

The building, amenities, and staff are all A+! Location can't be beat - walking distance to downtown, Belltown, Pioneer Square, SLU, Seattle Center, and Capitol Hill. Be prepared for hefty rent increases at renewal. Over 20% increase is out of our budget, so we'll have to go.

Great Place for a Seattle Transplant

This is a brand new building (opened in Feb 2015) that has been a treat to live in so far. Everything is extremely modern and there are a plenty of amenities including a game room, roof top terrace, gym, and even a dog washing room. Rent is on par with other high end apartment buildings in Seattle (same with parking)

First Hill Reviews

8 reviews
Pros
- Close to everything--right between Capitol Hill and downtown (across the Madison Street bridge).
- Feels safe; a few blocks south, and things get a little dicier, but this is a solid, quiet neighborhood.
- Some (more upscale) grocery shopping very nearby--Stockbox (of Harborview Medical complex), etc.
Cons - Not a totally "neighborhood" feel - Bars and shops aren't "just outside your door," for the most part. They're a medium-length walk away (e.g. to Capitol Hill). - Right next to I-5, though the noise pollution isn't that bad. - No wonderful, scenic places to walk your dogs
Pros:

+ Lots of nightlife
+ Hot new restaurants and shops open frequently
+ Extremely walkable
+ Lot of public transportation options
+ Walking distance to Downtown, SLU


Cons:
- Noisy
- Weekends bring in non-residents in droves
- Problems with homeless (though this is mostly a Seattle problem)
- Crime increasing, especially on weekends
It's great. Very close to PIKE/PINE neighborhood and is walking distance to a lot of restaurants/bars. It is in a very convenient location where it is central to everything (i.e. downtown, international district, etc)
Great location close to the highway however not noisy at all. Close in/out access to I-5 and I-90.
15 minute walk into downtown and the shopping district and 20 minute walk up the hill to Capitol Hill.
The McDonald's on Madison seems to attract some questionable characters, but overall I still feel safe living on First Hill. There's a Bartell's (also on Madison), but if you want proper grocery shopping, you'll have to go to QFC in Capitol Hill, which is still close by. Noise levels aren't bad. Overall, First Hill is a good area to live in, and the proximity to both downtown and First Hill make it very convenient.
First Hill is a small residential neighborhood between bustling downtown and lively Capitol Hill. It's quiet, except for the sirens due to the close proximity of the hospitals. Every year, though, it seems to get more and more built up.
not a bad neighborhood. I appreciate the preserved historic homes and the mix of early-mid 20th century apartments. new construction is all high-rise, so it's very much a blended/transitonal neighborhood.
Pros: Close to bars, food, transportation, and Cap Hill/ Downtown. Cons: Near hospital/loud sirens, pavement needs to be redone, hard to find parking.
