Capitol Hill is significant to Seattle in many ways. Its history, cultural diversity and vibrancy have shaped this unique Seattle neighborhood into what it is today. Most associate Capitol Hill with its most popular street (Broadway). Locals will tell you it is much more than that. It is home to Seattle’s largest gay community, was the birthplace of the grunge rock n’ roll revolution of the late 80s and early 90’s and has an elaborate landscape of restaurants, galleries, record stores and independent boutiques. Capitol Hill has two popular Landmark art-house movie theaters (the Egyptian and the Harvard Exit). The Pike-Pine corridor and 15th Avenue North of Denny are also important business and activity centers.
Capitol Hill real estate is diverse. The Northeast end is known for breathtaking mansions and incredible century old estates. At the center of the Hill, you’ll find typical Urban living. Low, mid and high residence apartment and condominium living. Many developers have taken advantage of high rents by re-developing areas of Broadway to build new projects.
