Congratulations to the project team of Gardner House and Allen Family Center for the National Association of Home Builders Best Supportive Services at an Affordable Apartment Community award! The project is an innovative public-private partnership between the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, city of Seattle and Mercy Housing Northwest to create exceptional services and housing for low-income families and families experiencing homelessness. On the ground floor, the Allen Family Center integrates education, employment resources, childcare and social services through several in-house service providers: Mercy Housing Northwest, ReWA, Child Care Resources and Mary’s Place. The residential portion of the project, Gardner House, includes 95 one-, two- and three-bedroom units of permanently affordable and supportive housing. The transit-oriented development is one block from a light-rail station and is between two major arterials, ensuring residents are easily connected, and don’t feel they need to make a large investment into a vehicle.
An exceptional award for an exceptional project! Runberg Architecture Group
