Obviously luxury housing is doing well in Seattle and affordable housing is a hot topic many are focused on, but what about senior housing? It's not a topic we focus on too much but it's good to see Columbia Pacific Advisors is making sure it's happening and right in the middle of the city.
Along with Ankrom Moisan Architects, the developer will present their plans for a 24-story senior housing project for a half block at 620 Terry Avenue to the design review board tonight for early guidance.
The Archdiocese of Seattle and St. James Cathedral own the site but Columbia Pacific is entering into a long-term lease in order to construct the tower. Plans call for 234 senior living residential units with a focus on Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care. 191 parking stalls will also be included below grade. The building is scheduled to be completed in 2019.
Benches, sidewalk treatment and other amenities will be added along Terry Avenue to connect the pedestrian and landscape design of the new development to the north and south. Along Cherry and James, similar pedestrian amenities will also be added.
Developments like these will be critical in the coming years to the ever-growing Seattle population.
