Great Location

This apartment complex has a great location between downtown and capitol hill. It is currently undergoing renovations that should improve the look of the inside. These renovations are sorely needed. Nice to have a pool and gym.

Upgrades Coming

This building is currently undergoing upgrades, after being bought by new management. The upgrades so far look really great, and I am sure when they are done, this apartment building will be very high-end. For now, it's just average.

Started from the bottom

The old owners here were complete and total garbage and the apartments reflected that. Ever since the new owners ought the building, you can see that they are changing it (literally). It kinda sucks living in a construction zone, but getting better!!

First Hill Reviews

11 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.
Tends to be a bit noisy as is close to Seattle U, hospitals and halfway housing. Close to everything. Parking can be difficult. Fairly safe and close to public transportation and the new street car service that will be opening soon.
Great!
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.
