The Press II apartment building is the second phase redevelopment of a full block in the Seattle Capitol Hill neighborhood. Press II contains 66 market-rate apartments with a full range of unit types from studios to two-bedroom apartments. The lower level is designed to reflect the Capitol Hill streetscape with a masonry facade and apartments opening directly from the street across private terraces. The upper levels are designed to harmonize with, but not mimic, the first phase of development. Access to the below-grade parking is through the adjacent building, which minimizes disruption to the residential street and allows preservation of the significant Japanese maple tree that arches over the sidewalk, achieving a ten percent reduction.
