Mayor Mike McGinn announced that an important milestone has been reached in the work between the City and Capitol Hill Housing (CHH) to make the Seattle Police Department’s East Precinct parking lot available for redevelopment into a mixed-use, transit-oriented development. The development will include affordable housing, retail, arts, and community space.
“The redevelopment of the East Precinct parking lot has been an aspiration of the neighborhood for 20 years. This project will connect Broadway and the Pike/Pine Corridor with 12th Avenue and will continue the revitalization of this part of Capitol Hill.It is a wonderful example of how government and community can create a partnership that benefits everyone.” Michael Wells, Executive Director, Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce.
McGinn transmitted legislation to the City Council that would allow Capitol Hill Housing to move forward with the development.
