St. Luke's Episcopal Church

Ballard Development


Thank you for visiting this website to learn more about a proposed public-private development by St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, BRIDGE Housing and Security Properties. The project is still very early in the design process, and we are committed to keeping the community updated through the design, entitlement and construction phases.

Project Address

5701 22nd Avenue NW, Seattle 98107

The Site

The full development will be located on St. Luke’s property which is approximately 55,000 square feet. Two buildings will be developed under one City of Seattle project number and with the same design and construction team. We hope that this cohesive approach makes it easier for the community to follow the project and ask questions.

The Proposed Project

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church is partnering with BRIDGE Housing and Security Properties to develop 80 affordable and approximately 200 market rate apartment homes. The proposed development is comprised of two integrated but separate buildings, along with a new church for St. Luke’s.

The market rate component will also have 20% of the homes affordable, through the City of Seattle Multifamily Tax Exemption (MFTE) program. MFTE units are income restricted for individuals and families earning 60%-80% Area Median Income (AMI). For an individual, 80% AMI is an annual income of $63,350.

The affordable apartment home component will serve families at or below 60% of AMI, which for a family of four is $69,420. If subsidies can be secured, some units will be rented at 30% and 50% of AMI.

The project includes ground-level space for a new church, located at the corner of 22nd Avenue NW and NW 57th Street. The market rate and MFTE apartments will be above the new Church.

There will be an underground parking garage with an estimated 165 parking stalls. No commercial or retail spaces are planned.
