Provides a community center and affordable housing to seniors in South Seattle
The Ethiopian Village project for The Ethiopian Community in Seattle provides a community center and affordable housing to seniors in South Seattle. To the north part of the site, a new five-story apartment building holds 90 apartments, 5,000 square feet of community space, a café, a community room, a lounge area, an outdoor amenity space, and 43 structured parking stalls. This north building connects to an existing 9,400 square-foot, one-story community center situated on the site’s south side, which underwent a complete renovation. The 78,800 square-foot project also features a central courtyard and a vibrant mural on the exterior courtesy of local artists.
This project aims to preserve community assets and reduce the displacement of low-income seniors while providing valuable support services. Some of the critical services include after-school programming, senior meal programs, health workshops, social services, summer camps, coding training, and cultural immersion courses.
