Columbia City is an emerging neighborhood located in southeast Seattle. The 6-acre development site is situated less than one block from a light rail station and is a short walk to Columbia City’s neighborhood business district. Phase-1 of the development will utilize two-thirds of the total site area and consist of 244 units in six buildings. The building mix includes 3-story walk-up, 4-story elevator-serviced buildings, and some structured parking. Amenities will include expansive landscaped areas, resident club room and fitness center, bicycle parking, and a large rooftop deck. Groundbreaking is scheduled for summer 2014. The remaining one-third of the site will be preserved for future development.
