Fire at Capitol Hill Apartment Building

A fire broke out in a Capitol Hill apartment building on Summit Avenue East early this morning, caused by smoking materials.  The fire occurred at the Averill apartment building, at which two units were damaged.  Two women were rescued and one got out on their own.  Luckily, no one suffered any major injuries.

New Affordable Housing

A new affordable mixed-use project is coming to a long-time vacant lot at 12th Avenue and East Jefferson Street at the outer edge of Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.  The building will consist of 40 residential units and 5,000 sf of commercial space and the apartments will be aimed at individuals earning an average income of $36,000/yr or $41,000/yr combined.  Capitol Hill Housing, an affordable housing developer, estimates the buildings completion to be in summer of 2012.  The project will also be “green”, designed by Environmental Works of Seattle.  It’s nice to know that affordable living opportunities are popping up closer to Downtown Seattle.  Applications for housing and more information on these Seattle rentals will be available two months prior to opening at

Capitol Hill Helps Win Waste-Reduction Competition

Recycle SeattleCapitol Hill, together with First Hill, Madison Park, Madison Valley, Madrona, Denny Blaine and Montlake reduced their waste by 19% in a period tracked from 2009/2010.  And because of that, the Arboretum is getting a new playground thanks to a $50,000 prize. CleanScape, which collects waste for 60,000 residents in Seattle, sponsored the contest.

The competition is running again this year and ends this Fall.  To learn more about the competition or ideas how to reduce waste go to CleanScape’s website.  But if Capitol Hill and the surrounding Seattle neighborhoods wants to win again, then we need to start reducing our waste even more.  Currently, the neighborhoods in the northeast Seattle are leading this year’s competition.

Ice Cream For Breakfast?

February 5th is the International Eat Ice Cream For Breakfast Day and local creamery Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream will be participating in the-what can only be called-holiday from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.  To celebrate, Molly Moon’s will serve breakfast favorites, oatmeal and/or waffles, à la mode.  That’s right, these breakfast items will be topped with one of their delicious ice creams.  Other toppings are available to finish off your breakfast including nuts or fruits.  Molly Moon’s has locations in Wallingford and Capitol Hill.  I’ve eaten an ice cream and waffle sandwich for dessert when I was a kid, but I guess I can break the rules now that I’m older.  I will definitely be getting some salted caramel ice cream on a hot waffle this Saturday.  What will you order?
