Capitol Hill TOD Apartments
Urban green living in the heart of Capitol Hill

The Capitol Hill TOD apartments, also commonly known as building B-South, is the luxury market rate building of the four on the TOD campus. The units are on the larger-end of the rental market and are comprised of 1, 2, and 3-bedroom units.  Surrounded by the 10th Ave E Green Street to the east, Cal Anderson Park to the South, and the Capitol Hill TOD plaza to the west, residents will be immersed in a calm, park-like environment, but adjacent to the hustle and bustle of Broadway Ave.  A second level amenity lounge, intentionally nestled at tree canopy level, will feature a full-kitchen as well as outdoor seating areas and BBQ grill. 

Passive solar strategies are employed on this project. The western units facing the plaza are shaded by deep balconies which also provide interactive opportunities with the plaza. The street level townhomes have entrances off 10th Ave which incorporate light brick and rich wood accents. The plaza-facing side will feature active use that will spill out on warm summer nights. 

Sustainable features include:

  • LEED for Homes Platinum target
  • Development on a brownfield site
  • Located in a highly connected site, with access to multiple modes of transportation, bike networks and community services (Walkscore of 97)
