UW, Seattle Children’s hospital plan to build employee housing
Two big Seattle employers are partnering with a developer to build something this region probably hasn’t seen since the days of the “company town” a century or more ago: housing for their workers.
Seattle Children’s hospital and the University of Washington have proposed a 184-unit apartment complex in the University District at which their employees would have priority.
The university is providing the land, the hospital some of the financing. Seattle-based Security Properties would build, own and operate the complex, on 11th Avenue Northeast between Northeast 45th and 47th streets.
