Alliant Capital Completes 295-Unit Affordable Community at Former Shopping Center Near Seattle

LYNNWOOD, Wash. — Alliant Capital has completed construction of The Reserve at Lynnwood, a 295-unit affordable seniors housing community in Lynnwood, approximately 15 miles north of Seattle.

The development struggled in its early days, dealing with environmental contamination at the site, which was formerly a 1950s-era decrepit shopping center, as well as a fire that destroyed initial construction in 2017.

“This project certainly had its challenges, but we were determined to overcome the obstacles thrown our way,” says Craig Thomas, who served as the General Partner for the project. “Our mission of providing safe, affordable housing is stronger than the issues we faced during this process.”

The project is 100 percent LIHTC units. AVS Communities was the developer, Charles Morgan & Associates was the architect and Exxel Pacific Inc. was the general contractor.
