August Wilson Place Downtown Bellevue Low Income Housing
This week Washington state’s Low Income Housing Institute celebrated the opening of 57 new apartments for working families at August Wilson Place in downtown Bellevue.

Monthly rent ranges from about $400 for a studio apartment to about $1,000 for a 3-bedroom apartment. The apartments were open to families and individuals making 60 percent or less of the area’s median income. A lottery whittled down the 300 rental applicants to 57.

The 57 apartments include 12 for homeless people, eight for veterans, and three for families with developmental disabilities.

Nearly a dozen sources funded the $17 million project, including the King County Vet and Human Service Levy, the state housing trust fund, federal funds, the Home Depot Foundation, and the non-profit ARCH.

August Wilson Place is located at 204 111th Ave. NE.
