Our goal is for everyone who works in Seattle to be able to live in Seattle. In practice there will be a few limitations to this. With Seattle raising its minimum wage to $15 an hour, we have an opportunity to build housing that minimum wage workers can afford. Certain families with higher than average expenses will not be able to afford this without additional income. However, if we build these units to be affordable to many families now, in the future after the building loans are paid off we can reduce rents further.
