Northaven West residents and team members celebrate grand opening

August 6, 2022 – Northaven West residents and team members celebrated the opening of their new community with a festive picnic and music by The West Seattle Band on August 6.

Construction of the new 82-unit residence for low-income seniors was completed in March 2022 in partnership with Northaven Senior Living. The new development joins the HumanGood family of affordable housing communities totaling 99 properties throughout California, Washington State, Pennsylvania, Oregon and Delaware. Community features and amenities include a full array of recreational, social and learning activities; fitness classes; a library; on-site laundry and maintenance; and Wi-Fi access. Northaven West is in the Northgate neighborhood, which has a walkability score of 91% with access to the Northgate Light Rail Station, shops and restaurants, multiple bus routes, the University of Washington Medical Center Northwest, and city parks

Washington State Senator David Frockt, Laurie Olson from the City of Seattle, Office of Housing Capital Investments, and Laurence Fergison, Chief, Technical Specialist Branch, HUD Multifamily West Production were among the special guests who spoke at the event and shared their appreciation for the project.

"More than 12% of Seattle residents are 65 years and older, so it’s our mission to provide older adults with safe and affordable housing in the region,” said Kendra Roberts, HumanGood vice president of Operations. “Northaven West is another example of how affordable housing can transform a person’s life. Providing housing that is safe and affordable, and beautiful, changes lives.”

"The Northaven West project is what happens when a community non-profit, a local affordable housing developer, and a national housing provider come together to leverage their unique strengths for a greater good,” said Brian Lloyd, vice president, Beacon Development. “Northaven, Beacon, and HumanGood have worked for years to expand this service-rich campus so more low-income seniors can have stable, affordable, and quality homes.”

Northaven West was developed in partnership with Beacon Development Group, a subsidiary of HumanGood. Beacon Development Group is an experienced affordable housing developer of affordable senior housing, and facilitated the funding, design and construction of the project.
