Over the past year, we have been keeping the community apprised of our plans to redevelop three shared houses at 2811, 2821 and 2827/2829 SW Yancy St into small apartment buildings, providing studio apartments for people with behavioral health needs who are experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness. We are pleased to report that we have secured the necessary funding from the City of Seattle, King County, the State of Washington, Federal Low Income Housing Tax Credits, and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines, and are now proceeding with the next stage of design for the project.
As part of the City’s design review process, we are inviting interested stakeholders to an open house, where attendees can provide input to the design team from SMR Architects.
Transitional Resources’ Yancy Street Project Open House
Wednesday, June 5
6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Avalon Place Community Room
2988 SW Avalon Way, Seattle WA 98126
All are welcome. No RSVP is necessary.
The Yancy Street project will be similar to our other permanent supportive housing buildings on Avalon Way. Each of the 44 residents will have their own studio apartment facing an interior courtyard that includes a community living room and laundry room. Staff will be on site to offer support for the residents 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Additional support will be available at our drop-in center and behavioral health program offices located a half block away on Avalon Way.
We look forward to sharing more about our upcoming project at our open house next week. We will continue to post project updates on our website at www.transitionalresources.org. You may also contact our CEO directly by phone at (206) 883-2026 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
