“Units at 13th & Fir are a mix of studio, one-bedroom, two-bedrooms, three-bedrooms, and four-bedrooms and are designed to serve families of varying sizes and incomes. Eligibility for the apartments is based on income, with two tiers at 30% and 60% AMI. The 30% units are subsidized by the Seattle Housing Authority. All rents are adjusted based on income, and there is no minimum income required to be eligible. The leasing website lists rents starting at $680 for a studio and $1,126 for a four bedroom.”

“On a corner site in the Denny Triangle that it doesn’t yet own, Trammell Crow has been contemplating two different buildings: apartments or life science.

“Ahead of tonight’s opening day game, the Seattle Mariners will debut a new indoor/outdoor events space across the street from T-Mobile Park at 1201 First Ave. S. The 9,500-square-foot venue, called Victory Hall, was announced in February and is located inside a historic warehouse that the team is developing into an entertainment and dining destination called The Boxyard. The warehouse was last occupied by Pyramid Brewery, which vacated in spring 2020.”
