St. Luke’s Episcopal Church to break ground on new affordable housing project this month

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church’s project to build affordable housing is breaking ground later this month.

The project to transform St. Luke’s property into affordable housing has been in the works for a couple of years. The project plan includes 84 affordable family apartments (studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units) in an 8-story building.

The affordable housing will be made available for households earning 60% area median income (AMI) and below for the City of Seattle. For a family of four, that would be $77,650.

The project plans include a community room, bike storage, residential services, shared laundries on each floor, and a rooftop deck and play area.

The project developer is BRIDGE Housing, the architect is VIA Architects, and the general contractor is Exxel Pacific. Financial partners include the Seattle Office of Housing, Seattle Housing Authority, Washington State Housing Finance Commision, National Affordable Housing Trust, and JPMorgan Chase.

The groundbreaking ceremony is planned for May 17 at 10 a.m. at St. Luke’s (2035 NW 58th St).
