The Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) opened a 75-unit building called McDermott Place. The building is located in Seattle’s Lake City neighborhood and is dedicated to Congressman Jim McDermott. It will provide permanent supportive housing for 75 homeless men and women, with half of the units reserved for homeless veterans.

The project architect is Michele Wang of Runberg Architecture Group. Grace Kim and Mike Mariano of Schemata Workshop were in charge of the preliminary design. ♦

    I met Sharon Lee at a committee meeting and then saw her again at a coffee shop where she denied it was her name. Very strange, but apparently also very bright.
