Traugott Terrace receives City’s SeaGreen
SEATTLE – The City of Seattle will present its first SeaGreen Award for sustainable affordable housing to Traugott Terrace, a new 50-unit Belltown apartment building for low-income residents. Traugott Terrace used many green-building practices to become the first affordable housing project in the United States to receive Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
The SeaGreen Award will be presented by Seattle Office of Housing Director Katie Hong at the Traugott Terrace open house, 2313 Third Avenue, at 2 p.m. on Thursday, July 24. The community is welcome to attend.
The SeaGreen Award honors Traugott Terrace as the first affordable housing project in Seattle to be built under the City’s new sustainable building guidebook, SeaGreen: Greening Seattle’s Affordable Housing, produced by the City’s Office of Housing. Sustainable strategies at Traugott Terrace include:
Traugott Terrace is owned by Archdiocesan Housing Authority, designed by Environmental Works, development assistance by Beacon Development Group, and built by Rafn Company. Funders include the City of Seattle Office of Housing, State Housing Trust Fund, KeyBank and Homestead Capital, low-income tax credit investor. City of Seattle financial incentives received were Seattle City Light’s Built SmartSM for Affordable Housing and LEED Incentive Program funds.
