It’s a dusty, noisy site now, but in little more than a year, it will hold 52 brand new apartments and townhouses. A slew of kids will be playing in the park, and 52 formerly homeless families will be taking their next steps back to solid ground.
That’s the promise of Brettler Family Place, the housing Solid Ground ceremonially broke ground on April 15th on the western side of Magnuson Park. The project moves our region closer to its goal of ending homelessness, and delivers on the promise of the City’s Reuse Plan for Sand Point. Pics from the celebration follow:

Aw, gee, thanks for the photo with Frank and Zanne. I was on the board when we started thinking about becoming a housing provider. It’s very satisfying to see the dream becoming a reality in 2011.
My hat is off to the Brettler Family. Perhaps it should be called the Brettler Family Family Place.
Mike Buchman says
Sarajane: It was great to have folks like you and Jeff there! It has taken a while to get to this point and without the pioneering work of folks like you who served on the board in those days, we would not be at the threshold of providing this tremendous housing for formerly homeless families.
Murray Meld says
Thank for the pix.
