Cash from your purchase goes directly to 12th Avenue Arts, a project of Capitol Hill Housing, set to transform a parking lot into a beautiful building. The project integrates affordable housing, arts space, nonprofit and community work space, and local retail under one roof. Working with the City of Seattle, arts groups, local businesses, and community leaders, Capitol Hill Housing is activating a key block to ensure diverse benefits for the entire neighborhood.
Groundbreaking is expected to take place in Late 2012, with the building opening in 2014. The 12th Avenue Arts development is possible in part because of Capitol Hill Housing’s first ever capital campaign, and the support of individuals, foundations, businesses, and government.
