In December, Mayor Jenny Durkan announced that the City of Seattle will invest more than $75M to build and preserve affordable housing across Seattle. Ten New Construction projects were awarded funding including Northaven Three, Chief Seattle Club, and Maddux Apartments.
Northaven Three is a partnership between Northaven Senior Housing and HumanGood Affordable Housing to develop 85 units of affordable housing, serving independent seniors earning up to 30%, 50% and 60% of area median income. HumanGood and Northaven have partnered based on their aligned missions to provide high quality communities for seniors. The project will be located adjacent to the Northgate mall and less than a mile from the Northgate transit center and future light rail.
Chief Seattle Club (CSC) is developing a mixed-use affordable housing project in Pioneer Square. The eight-story building will include 80 units of housing (60 units will serve people who are homeless), CSC program spaces, a gallery/café and a primary care clinic. The project will provide a portion of the units with rental assistance so that some individuals pay no more than 30% of their income for rent. It will be designed to support the physical, cultural and spiritual needs of people in the Native community. Housing-based case management will be provided onsite and residents will have access to the community supports and services that are provided at CSC.
Maddux Apartments is a two-building development, sponsored by Mount Baker Housing Association, that will provide affordable workforce housing for individuals and families earning at or below 50% and 60% area median income. The two-buildings will consist of 166 units: 97 studios, 11 one-bedroom, 48 two-bedroom and 10 three-bedroom. The project is a transit-oriented development located 2 blocks from the light rail in the Mount Baker neighborhood. Both buildings will provide ground floor commercial space, laundry facilities on each floor, resident lounge areas and a roof top terrace space.
