First Hill in 3 Words: Diverse, Historic, Urban

Living in First Hill

One visit to First Hill, and you’ll see why this neighborhood has been popular for centuries. The location is superb, with downtown, the central business district, and major hospitals all located within a short distance.   Although First Hill is close to a lot of major employers, life here isn’t all about work. Everything you need for entertainment and the fun parts of life are found right in your neighborhood. You’ll enjoy drinks after work at The Hangout, a chill lounge with a speakeasy vibe, or see why 8 oz. Burger& Co. gets such great reviews.

There’s a laid-back social scene in Seattle that’s perfectly suited to catching up with friends over coffee or brunch. The French dishes like croque monsieur are brunch favorites at Café Presse. Seattle and coffee just go together, and you can get your fix at Diva Espresso or at Stumptown Coffee Roasters. Get a donut to go with your coffee from the First Hill location of Seattle institution Top Pot Doughnuts.

Renting in First Hill, Seattle

Finding an apartment for rent can be competitive in Seattle, especially in convenient neighborhoods like First Hill. You can use the seasons to your advantage by looking for apartments during winter, when fewer people may be moving because of the weather. If you’re not scared off by chilly temperatures and rain, you can improve your odds of getting a place!

How much you can expect to spend on an apartment here is highly variable based on the city views you want. Most apartments are in high-rise towers, with units at the top having the best views but also the highest rent. The more affordable the unit, the more likely you’ll have a short wait to move in.

While the neighborhood is very welcoming to all lifestyles, many of the available apartments are too small for families, and there’s a bit of an edgy urban vibe. Living in First Hill is a conscious decision for those who want to be close to work and spend a lot of time out in the community enjoying all the amenities. There are so many things to do in this neighborhood alone, to say nothing of how close you are to the amenities in other great neighborhoods.

When you’re ready to choose an apartment for rent in First Hill, come prepared with good employment and rental references to verify that you’re the kind of tenant landlords want. Most apartments in First Hill are in new or updated buildings, with luxury amenities like rooftop gardens, quartz or granite countertops, stainless appliances and laminate floors.

Things to do in First Hill

You’ll love living in First Hill if you want to be within walking distance of some of the city’s fun nightlife, like Q Nightclub or Quarter Lounge. Garage has both pool tables and bowling and snacks like poutine and truffle fries that can are a step above the usual bar food. If you enjoy a quieter night away from partying college kids, The Fireside Room has old-fashioned ambience and live music.

Being active and pursuing fitness is a favorite pastime in Seattle, and First Hill is no exception. No matter your favorite type of exercise, you’ll find a place here to do it. NW Fitness 247 is a classic gym that offers regular boot camps with motivating trainers. The Seattle Boxing Gym helps to train fighters of any skill level. Sweatbox Yoga is a woman-owned facility that has been recently updated so you can enjoy Bikram Yoga in a supportive environment.

First Hill is also a pet-friendly neighborhood, with lots of spaces to walk your dog. The busy, urban Freeway Park is fun and has interesting street art. There are also two parks with off-leash areas, Plymouth Pillars and Golden Gardens Park. As you’d expect, many apartments allow you to bring one or two dogs or cats. But expect that you’ll have to pay extra deposits and maybe a small amount of additional monthly rent, and many properties have breed-specific rules.

Life in First Hill is fun, active and exciting. Come see why this convenient location is the perfect place to call home.
