Capitol Hill Housing shared its LGBTQ-affirming senior housing vision in September. Share yours during a Dec. 19 workshop at The Summit.

The community visioning workshop is for a new CHH development that will be constructed in a parking lot next to the Helen V Apartments at 14th Avenue and East Union Street, which is also slated for renovations.

Plans are to create 44-66 affordable housing units and 4,000 square feet of commercial space in the LGBTQ-affirming senior housing development, which is being designed by Environmental Works.

CHH had expected to begin the $25 million project in November 2018 and open the senior housing complex in 2020, with full occupancy by August. This timing could be affected based on which congressional tax bill ultimately prevails.

Housing will be made available to seniors making 30-50 percent of the area median income, or less than $33,000 per year.

Once the LGBTQ-affirming senior housing development opens to residents, on-site health programs and services will be provided by Generations Aging with Pride, a nonprofit focused on multigenerational solutions to challenges facing older LGBTQ adults.

The community visioning workshop will run 5:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 19, at The Summit, 420 E. Pike St.

Participants will engage in a facilitated discussion about community goals for the development, including desired programming and ground-floor retailers.
