King County records show that three parcels in Roosevelt with a combined area of about 12,000 square feet sold for $4.13 million. All have small pre-1920 bungalows on them now.
The properties are at 829, 833 and 837 N.E. 67th St., about one block west of the Roosevelt light-rail station, which is set to open in 2021.
The seller was Roosevelt Investments LLC, which is associated with the Seattle-based microhousing developer Footprint. The buyer was Barcelo Living of Auburn.
Plans filed with the city show a seven-story congregate residential project with 178 units and no parking.
Footprint's website, liveatfootprint.com, describes its suites as having “private bathroom, convenience center with sink and small refrigerator/freezer, microwave, bed and other built-ins for your convenience.”
Footprint buildings have common kitchens, laundry room, ground floor patios, courtyards and some have roof decks. According to the Footprint website, the company offers a “simple move-in process, all-in-one utilities and rent payment, and inviting communal indoor spaces that appeal to professionals, retirees and students who seek vibrancy in the community they join.”
The city issued a construction permit in July.
Footprint's Rebecca Potter and Janette Architecture are among the project applicants listed with the city, along with Chad Duncan, who has developed similar congregate housing projects in the neighborhood. They originally asked for 235 housing units.
The site lies within the Roosevelt Urban Village, and is near retail and the Park & Ride.
Footprint lists nine microhousing projects in Seattle on its website and two in Portland.
