Housing Developments: Smoke & Bubbles

… stay tuned for more details. We won’t be able to keep them under wraps for very long.

Other Developments…

  • The Seattle City Council will vote on Fair Chance Housing today. The ordinance passed out of committee 6-0 last week, meaning it will almost certainly pass full Council.

  • You already knew Weber Thompson for their great affordable housing week video, but did you know they are architects, too?

  • Burien advocates are urging their City Council to adopt source of income discrimination protections. Meanwhile, network news struggled to pronounce the city’s name.

  • Developers in downtown Seattle may have the option to receive greater height for smaller floor plates. 

  • 70 new affordable homes are coming to Lake City! LIHI will host a groundbreaking ceremony for Lake City Family Housing on August 15th.

  • Our own Grace Kim was featured in Seattle Neighbors last week.

  • A change by Seattle City Council will make it easier for the public to engage with- or challenge- development in their neighborhood.

  • Shelter developers/operators in Bellevue will have to apply for a conditional use permit due to an emergency ordinance adopted last week.

  • There’s historic preserveration, and then there is the Trueblood house in Kirkland. 

  • Fear of a housing bubble is stronger in Washington than in any other state. Those hoping the Canadian smoke blanket might depress home values appear to be out of luck. 

  • The Washington State Convention Center expansion project still needs money and land.

  • Helping Homeless Students: McKinney-Vento 101 Workshop on 8/22: SKCCH is hosting this free workshop featuring national expert Dr. Lenore Rubin and presenters from Columbia Legal Services and Schoolhouse WA. Register here.
