Located in Seattle’s vibrant Capitol Hill district, Heartwood is an eight-story apartment building focused on sustainability, affordability, and community. As the first Type IV-C building being constructed in the US under the updated 2021 International Building Code (IBC), it is expected to be one of Seattle’s largest mass timber structures. The beautiful exposed CLT ceilings and Glulam columns within the apartments offer a unique cabin-in-the-woods feel, but with all the comfort and convenience of high-rise city living. The densely populated neighbourhood boasts plenty of amenities and local businesses within walking distance, along with public transit access to farther locations such as the neighbouring central business district. Despite this prime location, Community Roots Housing made sure the 126 units were accessible with affordable rent for middle-income residents.
