Located in the Loyal Heights neighborhood of Seattle, this project will give seven families a place to live in an area with high opportunity. The land was donated by the City of Seattle as part of Mayor Durkan’s Housing Seattle Now Initiative. Through Habitat’s homeownership model, seven homes will be constructed for low-income families under 80% of the Area Median Income. These homes will meet green building criteria for sustainability and be designed and constructed to ensure healthy, low-cost maintenance homes.

As with the more than 390 new, low-income homeowners Habitat has served in King County, these new residents will receive financing with help from Habitat to ensure their housing costs are affordable. The property will be placed in a Land Trust ensuring permanent affordability for future generations and families. In an area with an average home price over $815,000 and rising, these homes will ensure that low-income individuals and families continue to have a place to build lives in Seattle.
