Friday, February 2, 2019 Leasing Applications Update
We would like to let you know that we still have a few apartments to fill and are still calling back phone numbers from the November wait list. Please remember you might not recognize the number that is calling you. Make sure that your voicemail box can accept messages and if you have a landline phone that does not have voicemail and you are not available, make sure and forward your phone to someone who can answer on your behalf.

Thanks for your continued interest in the Liberty Bank Building.
Built for the community, by the community:
The construction of Liberty Bank Building is anticipated to finish in February 2019! If you are interested in living in the building, the process to apply will begin on November 1.
At 9:00 AM on November 1st, 2018 we will open a dedicated phone line (206-375-2099). The phone line will not work until then. That day, you should call the number and leave a message with the following information:
In keeping with the City’s “First in Time” ordinance, we will call applicants back in the order in which messages were received. Not everyone will receive a call back. We have 115 open apartments to rent and will begin by evaluating the first 300 messages we receive. If you have not received a call back by November 15th, you can assume that we have already filled all available apartments.
If you receive a call back from one of our housing assistants, they will ask you series of questions to determine your eligibility for an apartment. They will also set up a time for an in-person appointment to fill out eligibility paperwork. The housing assistant will explain what documents to bring to your appointment.
Due to the high volume of people interested in living at Liberty Bank Building, it can take up to three weeks for us to process your paperwork and verify your information. If you meet the requirements, we will contact you to schedule a time to sign your lease and set a move-in time. If for some reason there is a problem with your application, or you are missing information, you will have 72 hours to provide the correct information before we will move on to the next applicant in line. Move-ins will occur once the building is complete, sometime in February 2019.
Here is a summary of the steps described above:
