Envision a network of streets that links residents to a new streetcar line and knits the housing into the surrounding community. Streets, parks and gardens work together as a vibrant and connected public realm.
It’s being built right now at Yesler Terrace, Seattle’s oldest public housing complex. The Seattle Housing Authority (SHA) is replacing the 561 existing subsidized housing units on the 37-acre site and developing a high density, mixed-use neighborhood including approximately 4,000 new housing units in a range of income levels.
Since 2008, MIG | SvR has worked on the project, first writing the Planned Action EIS, budgeting and costing, phasing analysis, and the development of entitlement and cost sharing strategies. Our expedient work resulted in the production of Plans, Specifications and Estimates on schedule, allowing SHA and city departments to identify bid packages for the 2014 construction season.
Now under construction, MIG | SvR is continuing work as the landscape architecture and civil engineering firm for the project, leading the design and development of infrastructure and open space.
