The city of Seattle announced this afternoon that Nickelsville’s move to the Northlake location will start getting underway this weekend.
As we’ve been reporting, Low Income Housing Institute volunteers have been hard at work installing 22 tiny houses at 3814 Fourth Ave. NE in the Northlake neighborhood.
The new location (below) is 20 percent larger than the Ballard location on Market St., and it will also have electricity, sewer services and running water.
The city said the Market St. site will be phased out and de-camped during the month of March, before being handed back over to Seattle City Light, which owns the property.
Residents in the Ballard camp were slated to move at the end of their two-year lease in November, but the Northlake site — also a City Light property — was not ready.
