Construction begins on Bellevue supportive housing project

The project is the culmination of efforts by non-profits and local government support.

Plymouth Housing, a nonprofit developer and operator of permanent supportive housing has announced the groundbreaking of its first building in Bellevue, WA.

The new building is the organization’s first outside the city of Seattle and delivers 92 apartments for adults experiencing chronic homelessness on the Eastside. It is part of a multifaceted housing campus designed to provide solutions to address the needs of those experiencing homelessness by offering a range of services and housing options.

“This campus has surpassed our initial expectations by becoming a cornerstone for ensuring affordable homes and safe shelter exists within our community.” said Congregations for the Homeless Executive Director David Bowling. “Plymouth and CFH are partnering to provide people with a history of homelessness an opportunity to access emergency, life-saving spaces, a dignified environment, caring community and the supports needed for those who need help.”

In addition to Plymouth Housing’s permanent supportive housing, the campus includes a 100-bed men’s shelter run by Congregations for the Homeless and 353 units of affordable housing operated by Inland Group.

The campus sits on a 9-acre site that had been King County land at 13620 SE Eastgate Way.

The project achieved two major milestones in July, when the King County Council unanimously approved the sale of surplus property on which the campus sits, and the Bellevue City Council unanimously approved additional funding for the men’s shelter and permanent supportive housing.

“East King County is not immune to the challenges of our region’s housing and homelessness crises,” said King County Councilmember Claudia Balducci. “The Eastgate campus will include the first and only permanent men’s shelter on the Eastside, but it will go further, with the first permanent supportive housing constructed on the Eastside and affordable homes for hundreds of families.”

Construction on Plymouth Housing’s permanent supportive housing building is expected to be completed by early 2023.
