Kebero Court

Kebero Court

Kebero Court was the first new residential building to open as part of SHA’s Yesler Terrace redevelopment. It was completed in April of 2015 and that month began welcoming current and returning Yesler residents, along with residents new to the community. Kebero Court was named for a style of drum important to cultural traditions in East Africa, reflecting the heritage of many who call Kebero Court home or who live and work in the surrounding neighborhood.

Kebero Court was designed to accommodate individuals and a range of family sizes. The apartments suited for large families have their own private entries, allowing easy access to the outdoors and the playground for children. The courtyard located in the interior of the building complex includes beautiful landscaping, pedestrian walkways, low-wall seating and outdoor lighting. All apartments at Kebero Court have outlooks to the courtyard or surrounding neighborhood, and many feature views of south Seattle and Mt. Rainier.
