As the year comes to a close, we’re reflecting on all that’s happened in 2014. It’s been quite a year for Capitol Hill Housing. Here are just a few highlights:
We began construction on the remodel of the Haines, to improve and preserve homes for extremely low-income individuals. Construction will be complete in 2015.
And of course, we opened 12th Avenue Arts, which created 88 new affordable homes in the urban center of Capitol Hill. This truly mixed-use project also houses two theaters, nonprofit space and police parking. Three local restaurants will open here in spring 2015.
One of the new residents of 12th Avenue Arts, April Kim, says:
I’m one of the many people who work in central Seattle, but couldn’t afford to live in the city. My passion is photography, which I’m hoping to turn into my own business. For the first time in my life, I can pursue my dreams, while still working full time.
