This mixed-use apartment development will include 280 housing units, a senior day center, and child care center, on a landmarked site on North Beacon Hill with dramatic views of downtown Seattle and Puget Sound. It will serve a diverse community of individuals of all ages. A central courtyard offers a welcoming and safe place for relaxing and gathering with a child care center and senior care center adding activity and vibrancy to the site. Nakano Associates is designing all outdoor amenities including a central gathering space with a small amphitheater, overlooks, and gardening spaces for the residents.
Rain gardens and bioretention planters are incorporated throughout the site and there are many existing trees that have been preserved and incorporated in the new landscape design. The first phase of the project starts construction in the spring of 2022.
