In my last post I covered a bunch of reasons why I personally think North Beacon Hill would be a wonderful place to live.

But what if you’re not planning on buying a house yet?

Good news – there are some great places to rent an apartment on North Beacon Hill, and a few of them are quite close to the Beacon Hill Light Rail Station. Meaning you could be living just 20 minutes away from the University of Washington or Capitol Hill without relying on a car. Amazing!

Here are the apartment buildings close to the Beacon Hill Light Rail Station as of July 2016:

The Denning


Address 1636 S. MCCLELLAN ST. SEATTLE, WA 98144 206.653.4088

The Denning is next to the Beacon Hill Light Rail Station and units feature stainless steel appliances, stone countertops, plank flooring, and more. There’s also a roof top deck that residents rave about, with stunning views of Seattle. The building also has several green features built in including solar hot water.

Plaza Roberto Maestas

Website | Developer Website

Address: 2601 17th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98144

Plaza Roberto Maestas is a big affordable housing project currently under construction and being built next to the Beacon Hill Light Rail Station. Its planned completion date is in 2016 according to the website, so I’ll update this post when more info is available. The development is said to be focused on families with two and three bedroom apartments, retail/restaurant space, and a community center. Sounds pretty great!

Westview Apartment Homes


Address: 2525 14th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98144

Westview Apartment Homes is an apartment building located about a 4 minute walk from the Beacon Hill Light Rail Station. It has mixed reviews online but offers pretty good pricing given how convenient the location is.

As I said, I’ll be updating this post later on as more options become available or if I find out about other nearby apartments that aren’t too far from the station. Until then, I’ve got a question for you – how do you know if Beacon Hill will be the right neighborhood for you?

I’m putting together a downloadable quiz so you can find out! Stay tuned; it will be available for download soon.
