Announcing: Sand Point Cottage Community
The Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) is developing a Sand Point Cottage Community projected to open in the Spring of 2020 in Magnuson Park. This project will provide 22-25 studio and one-bedroom cottages of affordable workforce housing for families and individuals employed at low wages. The cottages will have living and sleeping areas, lofts, kitchens and bathrooms. The community will include a common building, community garden, outdoor recreation space and walking paths.
The vacant property is owned by the city of Seattle at 6343 NE 65th Street. It is zoned Low-rise 3 and is within the residentially zoned portion of Magnuson Park. LIHI will master lease the land from the Seattle Office of Housing. The cottages will be built modularly off-site by students in pre-apprenticeship and vocational training programs, and assembled on-site by a general contractor.
Wednesday August 14, 6:30pm-8:00pm Santos Place: 6940 62nd Ave. NE Seattle, WA 98155 Meeting is in community room: entrance around back.
At the meeting, Rep. Frank Chopp and LIHI staff will share information and answer questions about the Sand Point Cottage Community project.
