The deadline is approaching for appeals against plans to convert the former Yesler Steam Plant into a center for community services. The project is one of the first parts of a large series of changes the neighborhood will face in coming decades.
The Seattle Housing Authority received a $3.1 million grant to turn the Historic Landmark steam plant into a facility housing the “Neighborhood House’s Head Start Program, Catholic Community Service’s Youth Tutoring program, an Express Credit Union for affordable financial services and SEIU training center and Seattle Housing’s employment opportunity services,” according to the grant description.
The deadline to appeal the Department of Planning and Development’s approval of the plan is December 3.
Aegis Madison construction keeps moving
Meanwhile, the six-story Aegis Madison assisted living building at 22nd and Madison is wrapping up the major cement-pouring phase and will start building walls by the end of this month, the company says (thanks for the tip Andrew Taylor).
Other projects in the area getting close to completion are the MLK/Jackson Firehouse and the Imani Village three-story apartment building at 20th and Fir.
