Located in the North Rainier Hub Urban Village, Hobson Place will offer permanent supportive housing for 177 individuals exiting homelessness. Hobson Place combines independent living with wrap-around services – including on-site caseworkers, a computer lab, and a 24,000 sf facility for primary and behavioral healthcare that will serve both residents and the community. The design concept was inspired by the cut glass business that previously occupied the site, as reflected in the lively accent panels that grace the façade.
Hobson Place is on track to be the first permanent supportive housing project in Washington State to achieve Passive House certification from the Passive House Institute US (PHIUS) when the project is complete. Hobson Place meets Washington State’s Evergreen Sustainability Development Standard and makes use of energy recovery ventilators, bioretention planters, and high-efficiency LED lighting coupled with occupancy sensors.
