About the Area

Surrounded by swaths of single-family homes and small multifamily residences, some might think of East Highland’s pocket of the neighborhood as “sleepy,” but quirky and authentically-Seattle better describe this high-demand area. It’s Capitol Hill, grown up.

Since 2010, more than 5,000 apartment units have been developed in Capitol Hill. While this inevitably brings a change to the landscape of the neighborhood, efforts to preserve historic buildings have maintained countless elements of the Hill’s past.

Consistently one of Seattle’s most popular neighborhoods, Capitol Hill’s reputation for bottomless-mimosa brunches, cream-cheese hot dog carts, and thrift shops remains a large draw for the city’s younger residents. The majority of this activity converges along Broadway and the Pike/Pine Corridor, streets lauded for being the vibrant anchors of the neighborhood.

Minutes away from the action, East Highland residents enjoy a pocket of quiet residential streets – less noise and nightlife without sacrificing the bars, restaurants, and eclectic, independent businesses that appeal to the tastes and ideals of Seattleites.

Quick connections to employers in South Lake Union, Downtown, the University District, and the Eastside via SR 520 clinch East Highland’s value as an ideal location to call home.

Pike/Pine Corridor

To the southwest, the Pike/Pine Corridor has long been a source of vibrancy for the neighborhood, yet in the last decade new investment, development, and premier retailers turned these connector streets into a true anchor for the community.

19th Avenue Retail

Just south of East Highland is the newest spoke: 19th Avenue E. Tucked among single-family homes and small apartment buildings, the recent construction of new multifamily developments enabled the quiet expansion of a new foodie nook – and where the foodies go, all else will follow.

15th Avenue Retail

The 15th Avenue Retail Corridor holds the honorary title of “grown-up Capitol Hill.” While the physical landscape has been largely untouched by development over the last decade, 15th Ave perfectly balances the local character Seattleites have to live with and the basic amenities they can’t live without.
