YWCA Family Village at Issaquah, 146 units of affordable housing, community and childcare centers, and YWCA offices, is an example of what can be accomplished through an innovative collaboration between city, county, and national partners to bridge the gap between working-class families’ incomes and ever-increasing housing costs. This $34 million, 2.4 acre project consists of 146 affordable mixed-income units. The Family Village is an environmentally and socially progressive, transit-oriented design: it seamlessly integrates a public plaza, childcare facility, and family gathering spaces amidst multi-family housing. YWCA Family Village at Issaquah is more than just buildings, it is ultimately a community. A living-space that empowers residents and enriches the Issaquah Highlands. Awards and designations that the project has received include Built Green 4-Star and LEED NC Gold, Governor’s Smart Communities Award, King County Green Globes Outstanding Achievement Award, and PCBC Gold Nugget 2012 Award of Merit for a Green Sustainable Residential Community.
