Capitol Hill has a long history of being a home and cultural center for LGBTQ life in Seattle. Community Roots Housing hopes to preserve and enhance this proud tradition by developing LGBTQ-affirming affordable apartments for seniors in the neighborhood in partnership with leaders from LGBTQ and health organizations.
The project, an eight-story mixed-use building located on Broadway between Pike and Pine, includes seven stories of affordable homes for seniors as well as ground-level space for an LGBTQ-focused senior community and health center. GenPride, a nonprofit organization serving Seattle’s senior LGBTQ community, will provide services on the ground floor in partnership with other groups. The building will also contain ground-level retail space in the preserved facades of the landmarked Eldridge Tire Building and the Atlas Clothing Building.
This project is part of Rise Together, a collaborative capital campaign supporting equitable development in the Central District, Capitol Hill, and White Center.
