The SOLIS project in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood is a sign that Passive House is finally entering the collective consciousness of the city’s multifamily housing marketplace. The Passive House “brand” features front and center in the marketing of the upscale apartment building, designed by Weber Thompson, built by Cascade Built, and owned by Solterra: “Seattle newest Passive House project—be part of preserving your health and our future”, the project’s leasing website urges.
