Client Seattle University Auxiliary Services
Size 250,000 square feet

Cost $23 million
This project included the construction of 202 units of independent apartment style housing for students attending Seattle University. The project was driven by the need SU had to build 400 new parking stalls for the new Law School that was being built on campus.

Maria Barrientos worked with Seattle University to develop a feasibility analysis and market study to ascertain whether the project worked. The goal was to drive down the expense of building and operating the parking garage by adding student-housing units above the parking. The project was funded with tax-exempt bonds issued by the State Housing Finance Commission.

Seattle University hired Lorig Associates to act as the developer for the non-profit owner of the project. Maria Barrientos acted as the Partner-in-charge and the project manager until the project financing closed.
