Rainier Court is a mixed-use development just north of the Rainier Valley Square shopping center. The goal of the project is to reclaim seven acres of underutilized land, remediate the contaminated soil, and create quality affordable housing, commercial space, pedestrian activity, and density for the community. The first two phases were completed in 2005; the third phase was completed in 2014. Long-term environmental protection has been provided by extensive remediation at the entire site. Access to local shops and public transportation make the site friendly for residents.
Phase 4 will consist of a 4-story apartment building and three 2-story townhouse clusters. About 6,000 SF of ground floor commercial space will also be included for locally owned businesses.
