Capitol Hill is a cultural cornucopia, as well as one of Seattle’s most iconic and colorful residential neighborhoods. It is highly sought-after not only for its unique parks – Volunteer Park and Cal Anderson Park – but for its diverse and significant architecture. But it is equally blessed with innovative restaurants and an extensive array of stores, ranging from boutiques to independent specialty shops. Capitol Hill exists as a dynamic microcosm of the people, the culture and the places that make Seattle great.
Seattle Central Community College and Seattle University are close at hand, while numerous technology and creative companies share repurposed historic buildings with a booming restaurant and nightlife culture in the iconic Pike-Pine Corridor. Much of the city’s vaunted healthcare industry resides at the South end of the hill, and an easy walk leads into the heart of Downtown Seattle. The recently completed Capitol Hill Transit hub provides unmatched access to light rail, streetcar and bus transportation options that seamlessly connect the entire city.
With the natural beauty of Woodland Park to the west and the vibrant student culture of the University of Washington to the east, Wallingford is one of the most coveted, yet convenient neighborhoods in all of Seattle.

Whether enjoying a gourmet dinner at the James Beard award-winning Tilth, picking up fresh-baked pastries at the on-site Grand Central Bakery or cooling down with a scoop of Molly Moon’s homemade ice cream, residents will find convenience and engaged community within a block of their front door. Beyond this local bounty, Wallingford 45 is also ideally poised to take advantage of all the culture and street life that has redefined and reenergized its neighboring districts. Wallingford has always been a conduit that connects the industry of Ballard, the “Center of the Universe” funkiness of Fremont, the sun-dappled streets of Phinney Ridge and Green Lake and the culture and academics of the University of Washington with the rest of Seattle.
