Othello Square will be a culturally relevant and welcoming place where people in Southeast Seattle and beyond can access opportunities for higher education, good paying jobs, and support to start and keep a business. Integrating shared space for cultural organizations and workforce housing will help stabilize communities at risk of displacement and engage diverse residents.
Massing Design for Othello Square
The Opportunity Center at Othello Square will include the following key elements:
- Postsecondary education connected to job skill development
- Small business assistance and entrepreneurship center
- Employment services
- Affordable commercial space for neighborhood businesses and cultural organizations to stabilize services to the diverse residents of South Seattle
- Affordable market rate rental and low-income ownership housing, to balance market rate and very low income projects already funded at Othello
