Vibrant and transit-oriented affordable housing community with 200 units for low-income individuals and families
The Aries is a vibrant and transit-oriented affordable housing community near the Bitter Lake Reservoir and Park in Seattle. It offers 200 units to low-income individuals and families including those with disabilities. The 206,000-square-foot apartment building will feature ground-floor residential common areas, an exterior courtyard, and on-site surface parking. Bellwether Housing established an early goal of cost efficiency to maximize density and minimize overall cost per unit to support targeted financing objectives. As a result, WALSH and SMR Architects utilized a collaborative Cost-Efficient Design and Construction (CEDC) approach which included careful layouts of walls and units that minimized sheetrock waste and finishing.
