Cabrini Tower, Senior Housing
Sisters of Cabrini/Low Income Housing Institute
FSi was the mechanical engineer for the new Cabrini Tower Apartments on First Hill. The $12.7 million project provides 50 one-bedroom apartments for seniors, community space, a computer lab, library, top-floor solarium, and a landscaped courtyard. The project also included street-level retail, and underground parking. FSi provided the mechanical, plumbing, fire protection design, and managed the electrical design for the new building.
The New York-based Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart (Cabrini Sisters) owns the building, and the Low Income Housing Institute was the development consultant and building manager. Funding included a grant from HUD, tax credit equity from Enterprise, and funding from the Harborview replacement housing fund. Forty percent of the housing is set aside for disabled and homeless seniors.
The mixed-use/senior housing project received the following recognition:
- “Show Your’re Green” Award, AIA Seattle
- Senior Housing Project of the Year, Multifamiliy Executive Magazine
