My South Lake Union Proposal

Home » My South Lake Union Proposal

We are getting close to the final vote on the South Lake Union rezone. Here is the video from Monday of my presentation the affordable housing proposal I have been working on. In it, I lay out the case for why I think we need this amendment and why I think it is better for Seattle because it provides more affordable housing at lower cost to the taxpayers over the long run. We need to continue our work for more workforce affordable housing across the city when South Lake Union is all said and done, but I think this amendment is a good first step to make sure there is at least some workforce affordable housing created in this neighborhood where we are investing more than $500 million in public resources.
