Beacon Hill & North Beacon Hill

Big New Developments Coming Soon to North Beacon Hill (Updated December 2021)

North Beacon Hill is one of our very favorite neighborhoods to work in, and in fact it’s where Matt and his partner Brian have called home for many years now! 

We first wrote and published this blog post back in 2019, but we’ve just updated it (December 2021) so you can stay current on what’s happening in Seattle’s North Beacon Hill neighborhood. In fact, we’ve had to delete some of the “coming soon” developments we included last time, because they’ve already been built and completed. Reverie  Beacon Hill and Colina are a couple of the big projects that have been finished in the last couple of years. 

A few of Beacon Avenue running through North Beacon Hill looking south.

After the 2012 rezone of the North Beacon Hill neighborhood, there’s been tons of planning underway, but things are finally coming to fruition. There are dozens of new developments both large and small coming to Beacon Hill, but we wanted to take a moment to shine the spotlight on a few of the biggest ones. 

Keep in mind that while some of these developments are permitted, some of these designs are still being refined. Not all information is available for each development and in many cases we are just as curious as you are! If you want to learn more, visit SeattleinProgress.com. This website is a goldmine of information!
