A Commuter's Dream

Downtown is one mile away, SODO is less than half a mile away, and Capitol Hill is 1.8 miles from North Beacon Hill. This neighborhood already had a light rail station, and with new stations in Capitol Hill and University District, the rest of the city opens up!

North Beacon Hill's Future

The primary driver of North Beacon Hill is TONS of new construction. Of notable help to the hood in the future is the development of SODO and Pioneer Square, both a stone’s throw from North Beacon Hill. As South Lake Union fills to capacity, SODO and Pioneer Square have been primed for large corporate residence. Weyerhaeuser is moving headquarters from Federal Way to SODO. King 5 just leased 75,000 sq.ft. of space in SODO, and a slew of tech startups call either Pioneer Square or SODO home. It makes sense, as traffic congestion continues to plague SLU; plus, light rail passes right through SODO and Pioneer.

Beacon Hill Schools

North Beacon HIll‘s schools are very good. Beacon Hill Elementary is rated 8/10, Mercer Middle School is rated 9/10, Franklin High School is 7/10.

What types of homes are available?

New townhouses range between $700-$940K (1300-1800 square feet), and homes range widely. New homes (typically around 2500-3000 square feet) range in between $1200-$1,500K, while older homes range from $500-$1,200K. There are lots of old turn-of-the-century homes, and mid-century homes on up are available as well.

Getting Out & About

North Beacon Hill already has its fair share of restaurants, pubs, grocery stores, independent shops, beautiful parks and more, but it's only continuing to grow. As NBH becomes more connected to the rest of Seattle, more and more people will be visiting, moving to, and starting new businesses in this hot new hood.
