The Marion West, an innovative mixed-use project in Seattle's University District that brings together multiple, synergistic community benefits under one roof:
Housing: LIHI’s housing includes 49 studio apartments: 20 affordable apartments for homeless young adults (ages 18 to 24) and 29 apartments for low-wage workers entering the workforce.
Supportive Services: YouthCare and Ryther provide onsite supportive services for the formerly homeless young adult residents of The Marion West to help them stabilize their lives, maintain their housing, find employment, and thrive.
Food Bank: The ground floor houses the University District Food Bank, which helps to feed families in the area. The Food Bank uses the roof for urban agriculture by growing vegetables and herbs.
The Marion West is named for racial justice champion Marion West, who along with her husband Ray, who was Black, faced discrimination and helped break the color barrier in the U-District by housing African Americans and students of color in the 1950s. Read bio.
20 units are for homeless Young Adults with Project Based Section 8 with services through YouthCare. The remaining are workforce housing.
