The 12th Avenue Neighborhood Plan Stewardship Committee will gather again this month on Thursday, March 26th at 6:30pm in Room 110 at 1218 E Cherry (the red Seattle University building right behind the Shell Station on 12th). Snacks and drinks will be provided!
The topic of this meeting will be the proposed new development by Capitol Hill Housing on the vacant lot at 12th Avenue and E Jefferson Street (pic above). Current plans call for a six story building with 40 rental units affordable to residents making up to 60% of area median income (i.e. about $35,000/year for a single person) over a ground floor of small neighborhood commercial spaces. After fifteen years the rental units will convert to affordable condominiums through a partnership with HomeSight and residents will have first dibs on their unit. CHH has not submitted for permit yet and is in the early stages of preliminary design and applying for public funding.
Please join us for a discussion about this project!
