Seattle Housing Authority has spent more than a decade revitalizing the city's stock of public housing, including the development of mixed-income communities at High Point, NewHolly, and Rainier Vista. Similar work has begun at Yesler Terrace. The agency is also renovating existing housing to ensure its availability to low-income residents for decades.

Seattle Housing Authority residents

Seattle Housing Authority is in the early stages of redevelopment at Yesler Terrace, home to more than 500 low-income families.
(The Yesler Terrace waiting list is currently closed due to redevelopment efforts.)

Redevelopment of High Point in West Seattle began in 2004. Nearly 1,700 families now call the mixed-income neighborhood home.

Worn out public housing is being replaced with around 850 units for people at all income levels, in the heart of the Rainier Valley.

More than 1,400 households will eventually live in the mixed-income community of NewHolly, bridging Beacon Hill with the Rainier Valley.

The former site of townhomes made uninhabitable due to flooding is now home to Lake City Court, an 86-unit low-income apartment building rich with urban conveniences and services.

The former Roxbury House and Village properties in West Seattle, along with the surrounding neighborhood, have been revitalized.

22 public housing apartment buildings are being renovated to extend their service lives and provide better living environments for residents.

Seattle Housing Authority is committed to one-for-one replacement of all housing lost during its redevelopment projects.

Asset management focuses on using every property to its full potential, while maintaining the overall financial health of the agency.

Several of the agency's redevelopment projects are being funded with money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
