Design review scheduled for new low-income apartments on Jackson Street

The long-vacant stretch of land along Jackson Street between 20th & 21st may be finally on track to see some development. 

Next week the city will be hosting a design review for a proposed low-income housing development there. Details are scarce at this stage, but we do know that they’re looking at a 5 story building of apartments for seniors.

Last year we reported on a tip that the proposed building would include 55 studios and would include space for homeless and mentally ill residents.

Previous permits filed by Pacific Housing NW in 2007 called for a five-story building with 100 residential units, 10 live/work units, and 1,500 square feet of commercial space.

The design review meeting is scheduled for next Wednesday October 20th at 6:30pm, at the Seattle U Alumni & Admissions building at 12th & Marion.

  1. LIHI came to talk to the Jackson Place Community Council quarterly meeting last month to discuss JPCC’s proposal to put up a temporary art and history installation on half of this property adjacent to the Lavizzo Park. They were very receptive and helped us brainstorm ideas. We landed on an installation like The Corner project recently removed from 23rd and Union except focused on the musicians from the CD’s jazz, funk, and soul era. Many of these musicians were the focus of the recent documentary “Wheedles Groove” and have been playing together around town. JPCC has a committee putting together the work plan for this project. If you would like to participate you can email [email protected].

    We are also looking for artists, carpenters, photographers, and a web designer.
