Yesler Terrace

Yesler Terrace master planning and EIS work performed by Collins Woerman working with Seattle Housing Authority set up a process and idea to make the overall planning as flexible as possible.  The planning methodology, EIS work and current zoning regulations for this district now being completed  assures that SHA can sell their property and with that money develop their own housing in tandem with other developers.  The scale of built work and real estate acquisition ideas were new to the client.  SHA was used to outright ownership of parcels and generally builds 2-3 story or 5 over 1 story frame buildings.  The Yesler Terrace site is one of the largest pieces of contiguous land remaining for development in Seattle. The project is thoughtfully planned for housing, offices, community center, parks, parking and gardens with higher density appropriate for land use in this area going into the future.
