One West Seattle project part of city’s announcement of $75 million for rental housing

The mayor’s announcement today of $75 million for “affordable” rental housing includes money for one West Seattle project that’s already been mentioned here multiple times, the new Transitional Resources apartments in the 2800 block of SW Yancy, not far from TR’s headquarters on Avalon Way. Back in September, TR’s CEO Darcell Slovek-Walker told WSB they’re proceeding with the project, saying they would soon be “submitting funding applications to develop up to 44 studio units in two buildings.” This city grant is apparently one result. The city announcement doesn’t include the specific award amounts but this Office of Housing document indicates TR requested $3.8 million. TR says the new building, replacing three old houses, “will serve adults in need of behavioral health treatment and support to live independently in permanent housing,” as with their other properties, which as of September provided housing to 85 people.

    Thank-you to the mayor. Our city needs far more of this type of housing and this is a start. Finally, it is nice to see no one complaining about support for those sick and less fortunate than most of us. Happy holidays and godspeed to projects like this showing humanity and compassion.

    So are they adding or remodeling? Will this add more than the 85 they serve now? I hope so…cause I have seen the current building (s) and they are pretty nice ….they have a house tho on property that is old and would be awesome if theyou tore town and made more apartments for their cliental -they are harm.reduction housing first model-which agreed is so needed….keeps people with issues on track to maintain housing ans their mental health helping keep our communities safer-
