We’re making the rounds on the new construction apartments on Capitol Hill. Lawrence Lofts – Citizen – and now a first look at Terravita Luxury Apartments which are scheduled for initial move-ins in July.
- 108 units in total
- 12 – two bedroom, 47 – one bedroom, 15 – open one bedroom, 34 studios
- Prices range from $1225/mo for 411 sf studio to $3050/mo for a 1157 sf two bedroom penthouse.
- w/s/g are metered to each unit (pay extra)
- parking is an add’l $150/mo
- Wood frame building with extra insulation and staggered studs, dual pane windows
- Not LEED but has energy star appliances and a few other green perks
The big question: What’s luxury about it? For me, I always insanely hope that luxury means a gas cooktop and to date I’ve been disappointed. It was no different at Terravita. What does bring the apartments to the luxury level are the finishes, location, and abundance of amenities including:
- Business center
- Party room
- Game room
- Rooftop deck
They did a nice job with the finishes – especially the granite counters, 10’ ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Aesthetically, I really liked the dark wood floors (but you’ll find a few have partial carpet). You can choose between cabinet color schemes as well — one of which is a stainless finish.
If you are in the market for a 2-bedroom, then you are in luck because the premium west-facing views are all 2-bedroom units – and all are still available. There are a few studios that open to private terraces for those that need a little outdoor space.
Terravita is located on the corner of Pine & Belmont. They began hard hat tours less than two weeks ago and already have a number of units pre-leased. So far, the only confirmed retail for the ground floor is said to be Denali Fitness, a small Seattle-based gym.
If you want more details about Terravita you’ll have to wait for the website that is in the works and supposed to be live in the coming weeks. In the meantime, you can check out the pictures I took or contact the leasing office for a tour via terravitaseattle.com.
