First Hill - 1101 8th Have

Word is, a tower crane is rising today.

Love Seattle. Its quite incredible the boom, and the sheer amount of units rising or planned. Has to be the biggest boom town on the West Coast. Nearby Bellevue as well is seeing some nice developments. Whole blocks being transformed.

Cranes litter the skyline, and am a big fan of the quality mid-rises/fillers rising.

Our old booms used to be pretty epic in my mind...greater Downtown would grow by maybe 5,000,000 sf of office and 5,000 housing units, and that would seem like a big change. I mean the early 80s (lower numbers), the late 80s, the late 90s, and the late 00s. Then this one came along...by my inaccurate count, the greater Downtown figure since mid-2010 would be 16,000,000 sf of offices and 31,000 housing units, and buildings keep breaking ground. Plus hotels, rail lines, a bypass tunnel, a convention center, the mostly rebuilt arena that just started, and so on.

One point it's driven home is the astonishing amount of housing that's needed for a four-square-mile area to be busy and consistently urban. We're not there yet.

New phase of Yesler Terrace revamp completed

Seattle Housing Authority says it has replaced more than half of Yesler's 561 older low-income public housing units.

By JOURNAL STAFF

Celebrations will be held today for the opening of two new Seattle apartment projects in Yesler Terrace: Seattle Housing Authority's Red Cedar and Vulcan Real Estate's Cypress.

There will be a ribbon cutting from 10 a.m. to noon for the 119-unit Red Cedar at 808 Fir St., with building tours and remarks by Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan. From 5 to 7:30 p.m. there will be a community gathering and supper at a pocket park at Fir Street and Broadway to celebrate the openings of both projects.

Cypress, at 120 Broadway, has 237 apartments, with 48 designated to be affordable for households earning 65% to 80% of area median income, according to a press release from SHA.

Vulcan's website says the seven-story project has a rooftop lounge, rooftop deck with a barbecue kitchen, fitness center, dog relief area and 8,000 square feet of retail space.





Vulcan Real Estate’s Cypress has a mix of market-rate and income-restricted units.





Red Cedar is SHA’s fourth new residential building to open as part of the redevelopment.
