Middle-income, mass timber apartments top out at in Capitol Hill, Seattle


A project billed as the country's first middle-income housing development built with mass timber has topped out in Capitol Hill, general contractor Swinerton announced this week.

Heartwood, which is being developed by the non-profit Community Roots Housing, consists of an eight-story building at the intersection of 14th Avenue and Union Street, featuring 126 studio and one-bedroom intended to cater to teachers, healthcare workers, and other professionals who may otherwise be priced out of the Seattle area. Plans also call for ground-floor retail space.

Heartwood is scheduled to open by Spring 2023.
