The Tukwila Springs Redevelopment — formerly Webster Road — is a 2.2-acre site with an existing 27,000 square foot single-story building, originally constructed as a nursing home. The building was most recently used as a residential behavioral health services facility before closing in 2017.
This project will make improvements to the existing site and renovate the building to include 48 residential units. These will be a mix of studios and single-room occupancy (SRO) units providing permanent supportive housing for seniors age 50 and up who make less than 30% of area median income (AMI). The building will also provide space for third-party supportive services.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
These homes will be for people over the age of 50 who make less than 30% of the area median income and need supportive services. This could be seniors living on fixed income, veterans who may need extra support, or people experiencing homelessness who are in need of permanent homes.62736
We will design these units for single occupancy. There may be instances where couples would share a room, but there is no plan to create family units in this property.62736
There will be staff on site. It is very early in the redesign process, so more information will be available once we get into the construction phase.62736
The security system will include surveillance cameras at entry doors, and key card access for residents. The electronic locking system will be coordinated with quiet hours.62736
The building will have a dining area and a large common kitchen where residents can gather to cook meals together. At minimum, each unit will have a mini-fridge and a microwave, while some will have kitchenettes.62736
The existing parking areas will be restriped, providing 22 parking spaces. Based on similar past projects, we anticipate most residents will rely on public transportation or ride-sharing services.62736

The existing exterior lighting will be removed and replaced with energy-efficient fixtures designed to avoid shining onto neighboring properties. Some new pathway light fixtures will be added to improve safety and security for residents.62736
The building will be a non-smoking facility but HACC will likely designate an outdoor area for residents who choose to smoke. The location of this area has yet to be determined.62736
This is something that HACC is supportive of but the ultimate decision will be made by the City of Gladstone.62736
No. The funding for this project comes from the Metro Housing Bond and Low Income Housing Tax Credit equity.62736
This will be determined once the scope of work has been finalized.62736
The timeline for this project will be influenced by several factors, including the land use process with the City of Gladstone, funding availability and determination of the scope of work. Please check the website for updates.62736
This project will retain as many of the existing trees as possible. The design team has been working with a Certified Arborist to determine the best plan for this. A small number of trees are in poor health, or have been identified as invasive species, and will need to be removed.62736
