WF Northaven


Realize Impact invested in WF Northaven, to help address the affordable housing issue in Seattle.

WF Northaven is an 89-unit, multi-generational, workforce affordable apartment building for residents making between 60% and 80% of area median income (AMI). The ground floor of the project will hold a seven-classroom early learning center operated by Refugee Women’s Alliance (ReWA). It is situated on the Northaven Senior Living campus near the site of the former Northgate
Shopping Center in North Seattle, with access to the extended light rail connecting downtown Seattle.

The women-led development team includes barrientos RYAN LLC, a minority, woman-owned development firm. The housing and childcare services will be made available to the Workforce Population at below-market rates by restricting rents and fees. The library, community center, grocery store and Homestead Park are all within 1⁄2 mile, reducing residents’ reliance on a vehicle.
