Hobson Place South

Location: Seattle

Winner: Walsh Construction

Hobson Place is a 93,000-square-foot mixed-use supportive housing building that provides permanent affordable housing and on-site health services to people who have experienced extended periods of homelessness. The project’s owner, Downtown Emergency Services Center (DESC), named it in honor of its former executive director Bill Hobson, an advocate for the homeless in the region. The project includes two phases: an initial North phase with 85 apartments; and a second South phase with 92 apartments and a 5,600-square-foot public health clinic operated by Harborview.

This nomination focuses on the South project, which was delivered on schedule and budget in early 2022. Walsh Construction was part of a collaborative team with DESC, Harborview, Runberg Architects, and TGB Architects, who navigated numerous logistical challenges on a tight urban site to design and construct a high-quality, Passive House-certified building.
