The Seattle Housing Authority plans to unveil its next-to-final development plan for rebuilding Yesler Terrace at the April 7 meeting of the project's citizen advisory committee.
The project will replace 561 public housing units at the First Hill site with up to 5,000 low-income and market-rate residences and nearly one million square feet of office space, in buildings with a potential height of 240 feet, if the Seattle City Council approves new zoning sought by SHA ("Yesler Terrace gets supersized," RC, Jan. 19-25).
The housing authority's preferred site alternative also calls for 88,000 square feet of retail space, 65,000 square feet for neighborhood services, 6.5 acres of parks and 5,100 parking spaces. SHA estimates replacing public housing at the site will cost it $300 million.
The Yesler Terrace Citizens Review Committee meets April 7, 5:30 - 8:15 p.m., at the Yesler Community Center, 917 E. Yesler Way, Seattle.
