The ?al?al, or “Home”, building at the Chief Seattle Club is nearing completion! The erection of this 9 story addition to the club’s current facility near the Pioneer Square light rail stop was topped out earlier this month. Inteneded to be a space of community engagement and healing for urban American Indians and Alaska Natives, particular those who are low income or homeless, the ?al?al building is planned to open later this year. The Chief Seattle Club decided to expand their support services for the community, and this expansion of services necessitated an expansion of facilities to go with it. Lund Opsahl has been involved with the development and design of the renovation and expansion since early 2019, and we are excited to see the project come to fruition. The expansion will include 80 new units of housing for low income people and those transitioning out of homelessness, a primary health care clinic, and a cafe featuring the works of Native American artists. For more information take a look at our post about the project.
