Nestled in the heart of Seattle, luxury apartments at The Victor are perfectly positioned at the crossroads of two of the city's most distinguished neighborhoods: Capitol Hill and First Hill. Let's explore what makes The Victor's location so special.

First Hill vs. Capitol Hill
While there aren't strict boundaries for each neighborhood, Capitol Hill is generally understood to be located directly north of Madison Street, while First Hill is south of Madison street.

Iconic Capitol Hill is known for its vibrant cultural scene and eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, nightlife, and historic architecture. While First Hill is often associated with medical facilities such as Swedish Medical Center, it's also home to Seattle University as well as beautiful historical homes and tree-lined streets.
