SHA Plans 4th Yesler Terrace Building

Seattle Housing Authority is getting ready for its fourth housing project as part of redeveloping the 30-acre Yesler Terrace.

Preliminary plans call for about 130 units at 200 Ninth Ave., but the entry will be at the corner of Ninth Avenue and Fir Street, which was recently extended from Broadway.

A notice that appeared in the Feb. 19 DJC said the building will have 75 parking spaces and 5,000 square feet of community space as well as SHA management offices and other nonresidential spaces.

SHA is seeking bids for preconstruction services and construction. The estimated cost is $30 million to $40 million.

Bids are due March 18, and there is a mandatory site visit on Thursday.

SRG Partnership is the architect of record and Pyatok Architecture + Urban Design is associate architect. Other members of the project team include Swenson Say Faget, SvR Design, Rushing Co., Hargis Engineers and Berger Partnership. The project is in design development. Construction is set to begin January 2017, according to Gary Harris of SRG.

Work will include new sidewalks, street trees, planting strips, green stormwater infrastructure, and a pedestrian path within the vacated right of way on Terry Avenue, between Broadway and Alder Street.

SHA has one building under construction now: Hoa Mai Gardens, a 111-unit complex at 221 10th Ave. S. that is set to open in 2017. SMR Architects designed it, and Andersen Construction is the general contractor.

Earlier this month SHA celebrated the opening of Raven Terrace, its second new apartment building at Yesler Terrace. Raven Terrace has 83 units at 820 Yesler Way. Weber Thompson designed the building and Walsh Construction Co. built it.

The first new SHA housing to open in the area was Kebero Court at 1105 E. Fir St. GGLO designed the 103-unit complex and Andersen Construction was the general contractor.

The long-term plan is for Yesler Terrace to have up to 5,000 housing units, 900,000 square feet of office space, and 153,000 square feet of retail and community space. It could take 20 years to redevelop the site and cost $2
