Client: Seattle Housing Authority
Hoa Mai Gardens is the second project to be implemented in the revitalized Yesler Terrace Project with the Seattle Housing Authority. The program consists of construction of a seven-story building with 111 units consisting of 1-4 bedrooms, with numerous residential amenity spaces. This project includes Evergreen Sustainability Standards and the design team is currently looking at LEED certification programming.
Fazio Associates designed the streetscapes, public pedestrian path that connects the 10th Avenue Hill Climb to the Yesler Terrace “Green Street” loop along South Washington Street, a large terraced courtyard with a children’s play area with seating, terraced p-patches flanked by fruit trees, and greenroof on various building levels. Bioplanters along the pedestrian path help treat storm runoff from the site, and various art elements integrated along the path tie into the overall vision for the Yesler Terrace networks of pathways. The terraced p-patches and pedestrian path provide views out to Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. Areas with bike racks and benches along the streets and pedestrian pathway provide multiple points of rest.
