LIHI is proposing a 51-unit low-income senior housing complex with parking for four vehicles and LIHI’s second Urban Rest Stop (URS) on the first floor. The URS would provide restrooms and a location for homeless to shower and wash clothes who wouldn’t otherwise have a place to clean up. The first URS is located at 1924 Ninth Ave.

The project is funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Development (HUD); LIHI received $7.6 million from HUD for a Ballard senior housing project late last year.
