SEATTLE — Sound Transit and Seattle officials are working together on a development project that will bring affordable homes adjacent to a light rail station stop on the agency’s Northgate Link Extension line.

The Seattle Office of Housing recently announced $15 million in funding for the construction of affordable homes at Seattle’s future Roosevelt light rail station. The office will work with Sound Transit in issuing an official request for proposals.

The housing project is one of several transit-oriented development projects the agency is advancing this year. Other similar developments are currently underway at Fort Hill, Capitol Hill, and Angle Lake.

The Roosevelt Station will open for service in 2021 and is one of the three stations included in the Northgate Link Extension project. The affordable housing will be built on land adjacent to the station.

A successful proposer will be announced by the end of the year through a competitive process managed by the city and Sound Transit.
