The proposed project

DESC is seeking funding to build an affordable housing development in the Woodland neighborhood. Both parcels are adjacent to Aurora Ave North.

Our plans include:

  • Construction of a new building
  • 100 studio units
  • Construction begins in summer 2022.
  • Features: affordable housing with supportive services and indoor/outdoor community spaces for the tenants
  • Tenants: single adults who are disabled and experiencing chronic homelessness
  • Owners and operators after completion: DESC
  • Funding: City of Seattle Office of Housing

Being a good neighbor is important to us. To learn more about neighborhood interests and to provide neighbors with more details, we held a virtual informational meeting about this new housing development on Aug. 26, 2021, via Zoom.
