We are thrilled to announce the official start of the new 200-unit affordable housing development in Bitter Lake, WA!
This will be another amazing, collaborative effort between our WALSH team, Bellwether Housing, SMR Architects, Latitude 48 Engineers, Sider + Byers Mechanical Electrical Engineers, and many others, to bring crucial housing opportunities to residents of King County.
Bellwether’s new development will provide housing affordable to individuals and families making between $46,500 for one person and $66,420 for a family of four. Bellwether has incorporated a large number of 2- and 3- bedrooms units to serve larger families who are underserved by the rental market.
The location is ideal for people who use transit on Aurora or bike commute to downtown. The development will also be near the future Sound Transit Light Rail at station at 130th NE, opening in 2025. Neighborhood amenities include the Bitter Lake Reservoir and Park, P-Patch Community Garden, playfields, a community center, and the Interurban Bike Trail.
This development is part of Bellwether’s plans to create or acquire 2500 new affordable homes by 2025 to meet the intense need in King County for housing options for lower income households. It is scheduled to open in 2023.
