Sound Transit's board last week approved terms with developers to build two transit-oriented developments (TODs) in SeaTac, Washington.

The sites will be adjacent to Angle Lake Station. Mercy Housing Northwest was selected in 2021 to develop a three-quarter acre site, called Angle Lake TOD North, while South 200th Street Station LLC was selected to develop a two-thirds acre site, called Angle Lake TOD South.

The north site will consist of at least 85 affordable housing units and ground-floor commercial and office space. The south site will consist of at least 230 housing units with 20% of the units being affordable housing. The development is part of South 200th Street Station’s master planned development, which is being built adjacent to the Angle Lake TOD South land.

“It is clear we have an affordable housing crisis in the Puget Sound region, and I’m proud that Sound Transit is playing a role in helping to address it,” said Sound Transit Board Member Dave Upthegrove in a press release. “These SeaTac projects are a positive step in addressing a critical community need.”

Together, the two developers will pay Sound Transit up to $2.35 million for the properties. North site construction is expected to begin in late 2022, while south site construction is expected to start in 2024.
