Constructed on two lots that previously housed one home, our South Park site consists of 13 two-bedroom, 1.5 bath, 975 square feet eco-friendly affordable units. Habitat partner Blueprint Capital, whose help enabled the organization to purchase the land for its land trust, has been instrumental in this important development.
The South Park Community project illustrates what is possible by engaging in private-public partnerships: Blueprint Capital assisted Habitat for Humanity of South King County in buying the land for its land trust. It also helped to create the award-winning design of these cottages that landed the project a Best Innovative Design award in the annual Habitat House Design Contest from Habitat for Humanity International. The City of Seattle’s Office of Housing also funded $910,000 for the South Park Community as part of its 2020 permanent supportive housing pilot investments.
