King County and the City of Seattle have been working together to encourage redevelopment of King County Metro property near Northgate Mall and the future Northgate Link light rail station. The goal has been to provide affordable housing and a vibrant mixed-use project on a centrally located property next to the light rail station.

What’s happened so far

Two bidders responded to King County’s 2017 Request for Proposals (RFP 1295-17 VLN Northgate Equitable Transit Oriented Development) for a mixed-use, mixed-income development including at least 200 affordable housing units on Metro’s Northgate property. King County cancelled RFP 1295-17 VLN on June 5. The county and Seattle are still committed to getting affordable housing built on Metro’s Northgate property to complement the Northgate Link station.
