Seattle Workforce Housing
SRM Development is in contract to purchase a portfolio of six existing apartment buildings, with a total of 354 units, located in some of Seattle’s most desirable neighborhoods, including Lower Queen Anne, Roosevelt, West Seattle, and Eastlake. SRM is partnering with the Urban League of Seattle to preserve rents at affordable levels for 99 years and offer resident services. Our goal is to create and maintain safe, quality affordable housing options for individuals and couples in urban Seattle neighborhoods.
The buildings will serve tenants ranging from 50% or below of the Area Median Income (AMI) up to 80% of AMI, which ranges from $45,300 to $66,750 for an individual or $51,800 to $76,250 for a couple living in Seattle. The acquisition offers a unique opportunity for low to moderate income residents to afford to live where they work and with close access to public transport line, which meets the goals and objectives of the City of Seattle’s Consolidated Plan for Housing and Community Development. We are seeking financing for the acquisition and management of the portfolio in part from the City of Seattle Office of Housing.
SRM and Urban League are grateful for the opportunity to preserve and maintain quality affordable housing in Seattle’s most bustling neighborhoods and look forward to being long-term community partners.
