Success Story
SEED Grows Commercial Activity and Maintains Affordable Housing
SouthEast Effective Development (SEED) has improved community conditions in Rainier Valley by working to maintain affordable housing and growing commercial activity. SEED spearheaded housing developments for low- and moderate-income residents, seniors and disabled people through a combination of acquisition, rehabilitation and new construction projects. The projects, including the award-winning Rainier Court housing complex, also feature cultural and retail spaces.
Houses with the above-average levels of walkability command a premium of about $4,000 to $34,000 over houses with just average levels in typical metropolitan areas.
