Planners are holding a public meeting this evening (April 6) to show plans for a new 16-unit low-rise apartment building being built on property owned by First Place School. The location of the project site is being obfuscated due to privacy concerns. First Place School focuses on helping the homeless who have school aged children.
The preferred design for Imani Village would be three stories tall with a courtyard in the center and a rooftop deck. If the design process goes smoothly, construction could begin as early as October, said Chris Cooper of First Place. The project has received $4 million from the Washington State Housing Trust Fund and $500,000 from the Gates Foundation. First Place has partnered with Catholic Housing Services to work on the Imani Village project.
