Historical Trivia/Special Notation

This large apartment building was one of the first to be built on the very fashionable Renton Hill, just south of Capitol Hill. According to the Seattle Daily Bulletin (February 17, 1913) it was one of the finest apartment buildings to be located in such a neighborhood, where it was surrounded by mansions of the elite and adjoined the convenient cable car line to both downtown and Lake Washington. The building was named by the developer for his beloved niece Helen.
