Highland Village Apartments
Maximizing density and affordability in multi-family housing


Highland Village Apartments had been acquired by the King County Housing Authority to preserve affordable housing stock in an area that rents have been increasingly rapidly. The property needed major renovations and upgrades. In the first phase of a two-phase project, a review of the whole program and ESDS requirements resulted in the replacement of all windows, siding, roofs, insulation upgrades, renovations to interiors and site improvements. In the second phase, a feasibility study was conducted for the construction of a new $11 million, 36-unit apartment building that will maximize affordable housing available at the Highland Village site. The building replaces two smaller buildings to maximize the allowable site density, while fitting in with the neighborhood requirements. The feasibility phase included working with city planning to accommodate the zoning and design review requirements.
