Examples of Real Estate Financing Projects
1. Rainier Court – 3700 Rainier Ave S (Southeast Seattle)
OED provided a $2.5 million CDBG Float Loan to Southeast Effective Development (SEED), for acquisition of Phase 1 of the Rainier Court project. Phase 1 of the project (completed) includes 208 units of affordable senior housing and 9,000 square feet of ground floor commercial. Phase 1 is part of an overall 7 acre project that will revitalize an environmentally contaminated, underutilized area into a vibrant mixed use development, creating affordable housing (rental and home ownership) and jobs.
More information on the Rainier Court Project is available at SouthEast Effective Development (SEED).
2. Cadillac Hotel – 2 nd and Jackson Street (Pioneer Square)
OED provided a $2.04 million Section 108 Loan to Historic Seattle, for acquisition of the Cadillac Hotel. The historic Cadillac Hotel suffered serious damage during the 2001 Nisqually Earthquake and needed significant repair. Upon completion of rehabilitation, the Cadillac Hotel became the new home of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Museum and also contains the regional headquarters of the National Park Service. The project received a National Trust for Historic Preservation Award in November, 2006.
