Ernestine Anderson Place Opens in Seattle

The new Ernestine Anderson Place in Seattle by the Low Income Housing Institute is serving some of the city's most chronically homeless seniors.

The development is named after jazz legend Ernestine Anderson, who grew up in the neighborhood. Pictured are Anderson and Sharon Lee, executive director of the Low Income Housing Institute.

The Low Income Housing Institute built the $13 million development on a vacant parcel that was in foreclosure.

The nonsmoking building features a number of green elements, including energy-efficient appliances and insulation.

The project is providing case management and extensive support services by Sound Mental Health for the residents.
