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.

Legacy starts on 306-unit complex in West Seattle

By BRIAN MILLER
Real Estate Editor

Legacy Partners has broken ground on the two-building project new called Legacy at Fauntleroy.

The site has split zoning on opposite sides of the north-south alley, so 4722 Fauntleroy Way S.W. will have seven stories on the west side, and 4721 38th Ave. S.W. will have four on the east.

Legacy at Fauntleroy will have 306 units, 261 parking spaces (structured and underground), plus 10,000 square feet of retail/commercial space. Completion is expected in the spring of 2021.

Encore Architects designed the project, which will sit across the street from a soon-to-open Whole Foods store.
This appears to be next door to a recent project called Huxley:

The proposed apartment redevelopment plan, by Caron Architecture, has its second and possibly final design review at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 3 at Rainier Arts Center, 3515 S. Alaska St.


Rendering by Caron Architecture

The corner site is a short walk north to the light rail station, and south to the Safeway and other shops.

Skanska gets $83.5M contract to build SU Center for Science and Innovation
By JOURNAL STAFF

Skanska USA said this week that it signed an $83.5 million contract with Seattle University to build the Center for Science and Innovation, which it will start building by the end of the month.

The 111,000-square-foot building will be constructed at 12th Avenue and East Marion Street, where the University Services Building will be torn down next week. It will create a new entry to campus.

The new building will house biology, chemistry and computer science programs. Included will be six labs for multi-investigator research in biology and chemistry and 13 teaching labs for biology and chemistry classes.

SU says the College of Science and Engineering is its fastest growing college, with nearly 1,300 students enrolled in the latest academic year and 1,600 expected by 2026.

Inland Group plans 330 affordable units in Rainier Beach

By BRIAN MILLER
Journal Staff Reporter

For a site it doesn't yet own, at 9400 Rainier Ave. S., Inland Group of Spokane is proposing a 330-unit affordable housing complex. The project, now called Polaris at Rainier Beach, has its first administrative design review on Friday, March 8.

The 2-acre site, long owned by a family group, is now occupied by Hong Kong Seafood Restaurant. It's about a 20-minute walk east from Rainier Beach Station.

Inland writes of the project, “Polaris at Rainier Beach is a proposed high-impact, large-scale affordable housing development that will help mitigate Seattle's continuing affordable housing crisis.”

Inland says it hopes to break ground in August, with completion in late 2021.

The plan by Olson Projects, also of Spokane, assumes an upzone to 55 feet. The preferred design for the five-story building would essentially break up the building mass into three blocks, each with a central courtyard.

Units would run from studios to three-bedrooms. They would have range from around 427 to 1,129 square feet.

The project would have three courtyards, and be a block from the Safeway.

On the Block: Here's how to build affordable housing on a brownfield site in Rainier Valley

Three years ago, Mt. Baker Housing Association paid about $2.8 million for two corner sites on the north and south sides of South McClellan Street, where it intersects with Martin Luther King Jr. Way South.

The nonprofit is planning a $56 million project there. It was previously called Mt. Baker Gateway, and now is called The Maddux.

The larger Maddux North site, at 2802 S. McClellan St., has soil contamination from a dry cleaner. The smaller Maddux South site, at 2800 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, has soil contamination from a former gas station and auto repair shop.

Thanks to the state Department of Ecology, the costly site cleanup — now underway — is being substantially underwritten with public funds. According to MBH and Ecology, the state has thus far provided about $6.6 million above the overall project budget.

The cleanup is the first partnership of its kind between Ecology and MBH, in what the state calls its Healthy Housing Remediation Program.

The two sites are being cleaned up under the state's Healthy Housing Remediation Program. Mt. Baker Housing hopes to start construction in 2020.


The Maddux will have 166 affordable units in two buildings on either side of South McClellan Street.

39 units planned near Mount Baker Station
By JOURNAL STAFF

Seattle firm JW Architects is designing a 39-unit mixed-use project for a corner lot at 1900 23rd Ave. S. at the north end of Rainier Valley. The cross streets are 23rd Avenue South and South Holgate Street.

The building would have a three-story podium tucked into the sloped site. Upper levels would be set back, particularly along Holgate. Parts of the west face may angle to mimic neighboring power lines.

The site is a block west of Rainier Avenue South, not far from the Mount Baker light rail station.

City planners noted in a December early design report that the neighborhood is undergoing rapid changes with the redevelopment of older homes and the purchasing of newer homes by younger buyers who like the proximity to light rail.

A second light rail station will open just blocks away at 23rd Avenue South and Interstate 90 when the East Link extension opens in 2023.

The eight-story building would have 39 units and a street-level commercial space in Seattle’s Atlantic neighborhood.

New $122M VA building houses research, mental health treatment
By JOURNAL STAFF

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs held a grand opening last week for its $121.6 million mental health and research building its Beacon Hill medical campus.

VA Puget Sound provides care to more than 110,000 veterans across its nine facilities in the Pacific Northwest. It also has the fifth-largest research program in the VA system.

The building will also be home to a prosthetic lab with motion analysis, custom fabrication and fitting capabilities so patients can be fitted and receive their prostheses in one location.

Other research topics will include PTSD and head injuries from blasts, Alzheimer's disease, genomics, oncology and substance abuse.

The VA's Beacon Hill campus dates back to 1951, when it first opened on a 44-acre site that had been a part of Jefferson Park.


VA Puget Sound opened the 220,000-square-foot building on its Beacon Hill campus to patients on Monday.

Wood Partners acquires 242-apartment Columbia City project for nearly $17M

By BRIAN MILLER
Real Estate Editor

As planned, a venture led by Lake Union Partners has sold a fully entitled mixed-use project and land in Columbia City, at 4716 Rainier Ave. S., for almost $16.7 million.

The irregular 1.7-acre site occupies most of the southeast corner at Rainier and South Alaska Street. It's now occupied by a small apartment building, a post office and some retail, which will be removed.

The plan, by Johnston Architects, is for a five- to seven-story building on the sloping site with 242 apartments. Some combination of retail, commercial and office space will total 26,100 square feet. Three levels of underground and structured parking will have 245 stalls for both shoppers and residents. Total project size, including the parking, is about 342,000 square feet. The project received its final permit, for construction, earlier this month.

186 units approved for Rainier Valley block

By BRIAN MILLER
Real Estate Editor

The owner of a full block at 1801 Rainier Ave. S. has received demolition permits for the old auto-service buildings on the property, and a master use permit for a new apartment building.

MAS Architecture’s approved plan is for a six-story building with 186 units, retail and 69 underground parking spaces.

The trapezoidal building mirrors the shape of the irregular block. The building will have an interior courtyard with a two-story overlook facing South Holgate Street.

Retail/commercial space will total about 12,400 square feet in one large bay facing Rainier. No tenant in mentioned, though the size would fit a drug store or small-format grocer.

The project is one of two that Jabooda is planning near Judkins Park Station.

Two hotels take shape for next Northgate design review

By BRIAN MILLER
Journal Staff Reporter

The massive Northgate renovation plan continues to grind through the permitting process.

Owner Simon Property Group has filed demolition plans for Macy's, which will close this July. JCPenney previously announced it will close and not return. Nordstrom is still undecided about its future at the 69-year-old mall, where light rail service will begin in 2021.

New to the team is DLR Group, now apparently designing the west hotel, which is closest to the freeway and north of an existing structured parking garage (which is itself north of the future light rail station).

The second east hotel isn't as far along in design development. That seven-story building will have 175 rooms, retail and a rooftop bar. It will be a few steps northwest from the NHL facility (projected to open in 2021 or earlier). GGLO says of the hotel that it “envisions heavy pedestrian activity back and forth with the NHL practice facility.”

The west hotel will be seven stories with 155 extended-stay rooms.
