Shout-out to SHAG!
A major thank you to our member, Sustainable Housing for Ageless Generations! Also known as SHAG, this non-profit formed nearly three decades ago in order to provide a sustainable lifestyle for seniors. SHAG builds stable housing and creates communities.
Their most recent development plans include Legacy Plaza, which intends on being a mixed-use building, offering 166 units of independent-living apartments for retired seniors, designed to suit various income levels above commercial space and a subterranean parking garage. Residents of the one- and two-bedroom apartments will enjoy residential amenities, such as full kitchens tricked out with dishwashers, oven ranges, refrigerators and washer dryer hookups, full bathrooms, and for select units, roll-in showers. Common spaces are to include social rooms, a library business center, a media room, a fitness center, and a lobby.
Legacy Plaza is granted through the Federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program. As a part of the financing, SHAG had the opportunity to donate to a nonprofit and selected HDC. By donating to our work, SHAG recognized HDC as a systems change organization working through advocacy, education, and leadership to ensure a landscape where affordable housing development is a priority, especially for senior living needs. Legacy Plaza will be a community that exemplifies SHAG and HDC’s shared vision for a King County where everyone lives with dignity in safe, healthy, and affordable homes.
