There will be 599 new permanent housing units for people experiencing homelessness added in Seattle, 81 of which will be in Ballard.
Seattle’s Office of Housing will commit about $60 million from the Seattle Housing levy along with state and federal resources to build and operate the housing, which will be distributed amongst six buildings around the city. Ballard’s site will be at 6400 15th Ave NW at the former Corry’s Fine Dry Cleaning and Fuzzy Wuzzy Rug Cleaning location.
Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) offers non-time limited affordable housing and voluntary supportive services that may include counseling, behavioral and physical health support and alcohol and drug treatment, according to the City.
Other areas to receive PSH units are Greenwood (66 units), Green Lake (124 units), Bitter Lake (100 units), and Lake City (125 units).
