Capitol Hill Housing has started work on the 115-unit Liberty Bank Building project near 23rd and Union. Mayor Ed Murray, council member Kshama Sawant and representatives from CHH were on hand to wield shovels at the future affordable housing site. CHH CEO Christopher Persons said, “If we're going to preserve affordable, equitable communities, it's going to take all developers, nonprofit and for-profit alike, to double down on stopping displacement. Stable housing is the stake in the ground that allows communities to flourish.” The $32million project was designed by Mithun and is being built by Walsh Construction. Completion is set for late 2018. Funding came from city and state sources, Heritage Bank, Impact Capital, Enterprise Community Partners, Lucky 7 Foundation and Wyncote Foundation NW.
