Growing to meet the housing needs of East King County
Our forward-looking, responsible and careful approach to our mission means we are continually evaluating the future needs of our Eastside community so we can respond and work toward our vision: Regardless of income, individuals and families in East King County have the stable housing and strong support in diverse communities that empower success and foster a high quality of life.
In 2012, we opened two new communities – Francis Village and Andrew’s Glen, adding 100 apartments to serve as homes for veterans, formerly homeless teens and families, and others in need of stable and affordable housing. Today, we have several other communities in development to be opened in the coming years:
South Kirkland Park & Ride
Located at the current site of the South Kirkland Park & Ride, this 58-apartment community will provide affordable homes for 29 formerly homeless families and 29 working families. As part of a larger transit-oriented redevelopment project, the new South Kirkland Park & Ride will boast a new transit center, an approximate 500-stall parking garage, 181-unit market-rate apartment building with 6,000 to 8,000 square feet of retail space, and Imagine Housing’s new community. Imagine Housing’s building will break ground in 2013 and will open to residents in early 2014.
Located in Snoqualmie Ridge, Imagine Housing is planning a 160-apartment complex with a large community center for working individuals and families. This community is set to break ground in late 2013 and will begin welcoming residents in phases starting in 2015.
Totem Lake Phase II
Imagine Housing has purchased the land directly next door to Francis Village and is prepared to develop 76 affordable apartments for seniors. This project, which is expected to break ground in 2015, will help address the region’s growing need for housing options for seniors.
