ULI Northwest is pleased to announce that Plaza Roberto Maestas in Seattle has been selected as a winner of the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Terwilliger Center for Housing’s 2019 Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award.
The annual award recognizes best practices in the development of housing that is affordable to people with a broad range of incomes. Developments eligible for the award are those in which all or a portion of the units are affordable to households earning up to 120 percent of the median income in the areas in which the projects are located.
Owned by El Centro de la Raza, a civil rights organization grounded in the Latino community that provides a range of services, Plaza Roberto Maestas is a landmark equitable transit-oriented development in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Seattle. This development locates affordable housing in close proximity to high quality transit, economic opportunities, retail and recreational amenities. This development directly addresses the urgent need for affordable family housing and economic opportunity in the Beacon Hill neighborhood and is a model for community inspired transportation-oriented developments.
Please join us in congratulating Plaza Roberto Maestas for this prestigious award!
