In December we introduced “The Curve,” a replacement housing project partnership between Seattle Children’s and the University of Washington.

We’re happy to report that The Curve project is right on target. Security Properties, in partnership with GGLO Architects, has submitted schematic designs for Children’s to approve; has selected a general contractor, Walsh Construction; and is preparing to submit a Master Use Permit application to the City of Seattle.  That submittal should take place by mid-June, beginning a sequence of design and permitting milestones that will lead to the start of construction in July 2014 and completion of the project in later 2014. 

The Curve is a 184-unit apartment project, consisting of studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom units developed on what is now a surface parking lot located on 11th Ave NE, just south of NE 47th Street,  owned by the University of Washington and leased on a long-term basis to the apartment ownership. See a preliminary schematic of The Curve’s east elevation design below.







Housing at The Curve will be available to faculty and staff of the UW and Children’s, as well as the general public, and will have at least 34 units subsidized to be affordable to families making up to 75% of area median income.

Updates on the progress of The Curve will be shared on the Construction Blog as they become available.
