Compass Center

Seattle, WA

 

The Compass Center project involved the renovation of the 77 Building – five-story, century-old facility that was heavily damaged during the 2001 Nisqually Earthquake. A hygiene center and bank were renovated and reopened. In addition, twenty-three apartments for low-income tenants were added to the 2nd - 5th floors of the building. 

 

The project also included the construction of the new 42,000 sq. ft. 210 Building on the parking lot directly south of the facility.  The 210 building is now home to a large commercial kitchen and dining room, commercial laundry facility and chapel. Floors two through five consist of 78 units of transitional housing for men. The top floor houses offices for the Compass Center. The five-story addition is connected at the basement and first floor.
