Description

Yesler, a vibrant new community

The Yesler community is a 30-acre plus development on a hill above downtown Seattle. It is being transformed through a complete redevelopment into a diverse, modern, urban community with residents across the income spectrum. New subsidized housing for people with extremely low incomes has been built with more to come, ensuring that all of the residents living at Yesler Terrace at the time redevelopment began have the opportunity to continue to live in their community. Housing has been added for people with low and moderate incomes, as well as for people who pay market-rate rents in buildings that have been developed by private partners. When completed, Yesler will feature nearly 5,000 apartments in numerous individually designed buildings. A new hillclimb and pedestrian pathway link Yesler with surrounding neighborhoods, and two historic sites – a former steam plant and a performing arts hall – have been renovated for community programming. Yesler Terrace Park features an outdoor fitness loop, a RAVE soccer field, community gardening spaces and other amenities. The Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation operates a busy neighborhood Community Center at Yesler and there are convenient connections to the region’s public transportation network.
