Capitol Hill Housing Celebrates Grand Opening of Unity Village of White Center

November 2, 2011 (Seattle, WA) - The White Center community is delighted to announce the grand opening of Unity Village, a new construction project featuring 30 units of affordable apartments near the business district, close to public transit, shopping and services.  During this challenging economic climate for affordable housing developers, the White Center Community Development Association, Capitol Hill Housing and Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association have combined resources through an innovative partnership to develop Unity Village, formerly known as Strength of Place Village.


The celebration will feature a tour of the project and remarks from King County Executive Dow Constantine, King County Council Member Joe McDermott and Burien Mayor Joan McGilton, along with other officials from the State of Washington, King County, White Center, Seattle and Burien.


Located on the corner of SW 100th Street and 13th Avenue SW, the $9.5 million project features 30 new apartments ranging from one-bedrooms to three-bedrooms for low-income families making less than about $55,000 per year.  Unity Village boasts many green features, and is green built to the Washington State Evergreen Sustainable Development Standard.


This project is one of just a handful of projects in Washington State that received American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Tax Credit Assistance Program funding administered by the Washington State Housing Finance Commission.  In a time when low-income housing tax credits were scarce, the partnership’s combined strengths made it feasible for the project to secure tax credit equity and a federal award.  Capitol Hill Housing is the lead housing developer of Unity Village, the White Center Community Development Association is the local sponsor and Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association secured the site in 2008 and provided construction management services for the project.  The project is owned by a tax credit Limited Liability Company in which all three non-profit organizations have an ownership stake.


The name “Unity Village” was selected by the White Center community and the tenants of the project as they began meeting to sign leases. According to Aileen Balahadia, Executive Director of the White Center Community Development Association, “the project’s residents along with its owners collectively recognized unity as a goal of the community and a hallmark of the collaborative nature of the project’s development.   This decision, guided authentically by resident voice, is seen a true testament to how this project developed from original vision to grand opening.”


Christopher Persons, Executive Director of Capitol Hill Housing said “it has been an honor and a privilege to work on this unique project in the heart of White Center. The development of Unity Village is a model for collaboration and the development of affordable housing in a community context.”


Funding for this project was provided by Impact Capital, King County, Washington State Housing Finance Commission, American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Tax Credit Assistance Program, the State of Washington, National Equity Fund, Bank of America, the Employees Community Fund of Boeing Puget Sound and the Bill & Melinda Gates Sound Families Initiative in conjunction with the King County Housing Authority.


The event sponsors are Absher Construction and Bank of America.
