Affordable in the City


Seattle, WA

Simple Form, Bold Moves

Decibel represents a new model of high quality workforce housing realized through economical design and delivery. The bold and functionally designed project has a contemporary aesthetic with simple and clear massing, and a dynamic street presence. Floor-to-ceiling windows expand the efficient layout and connect residents to nature and urban life.

Redefining Affordable

Located in close proximity to Seattle’s city center and major employers, Decibel seeks to redefine healthy, sustainable living in an era of escalating rents. Twenty percent of the units are income restricted to residents making 80% or less of the AMI.

Connected and Sustainable

A two-story market hall space contributes to a vibrant streetscape and shares the building’s entrance, blending amenity space with neighborhood activity. The community offers residents a low-carbon footprint with connections to multiple transit modes, low parking ratios, bicycle storage, and low-impact water and energy strategies.
