Northgate Affordable Housing

Community Roots Housing and BRIDGE Housing are partnering to create affordable housing at the Northgate Transit HUB. The project will provide 232 affordable apartments at the site of the forthcoming Northgate Link light rail station on land owned by King County Metro. The new development will include a 10,000 square foot daycare on the ground floor. The building will be designed to meet Evergreen Sustainable Design Standards and leverage great transit opportunities such as bike lanes and bus connections.

The Northgate Equitable Transit Oriented Development (TOD) will create:

  • An affordable, vibrant, and inclusive community where people of all incomes live close to where they work, play, and shop
  • A community with increased mobility for pedestrians, transit riders and bicyclists served by the new transportation hub
  • An early education space offering a critical asset in the neighborhood
  • A design that leads in environmental sustainability by balancing urban growth and natural resource protection

Location: NE 103rd St. & 3rd Ave. NE in the Seattle Northgate neighborhood

Income Qualifications & Apartment Mix

The building will include a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments serving 30% to 60% of the Area Median Income (AMI). For a four-person household, this means households with an income between approximately $35,800 and $71,640.

“Renters shouldn’t have to choose between a home that’s affordable and one that’s close to work and transit. This project adds hundreds of affordable units next to one of the most significant transit hubs in King County, connecting more people to the greenest way to get around. “
