Each apartment has a washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave, range, refrigerator, television, VCR, linens and a generously equipped kitchen. One-and two-bedroom apartments have queen-size sleeper sofas.

Construction Notice

The Pete Gross House will be undergoing extensive repair on the exterior siding of the building, which will require closure of 34 of the 70 apartments as well as the P1 level of the garage. Construction began in May 2013 and is expected to last through mid-winter.

Disruption is difficult for any apartment residents, but especially those undergoing medical treatments. We salute our patients and families as they face these changes with us and appreciate their patience and flexibility. The project is being carefully coordinated and monitored by Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Facilities and SCCA Infection Prevention personnel. They will routinely check that infection control barriers are in place and properly maintained.

The wait list for Pete Gross House will be longer than usual because of the construction project, but we will do everything in our power to get you proper housing.

Residents will see the following changes to the building:

  • The front entry will be moved to the north. The door will be changed to one with a window, and signage will indicate the new entry/exit. Residents will still access the mailboxes and elevators the same way. The shuttle will pick up and drop off from the new temporary entry. The call box at the entry will also relocate to the new temporary area.
  • Parking level P1 will be closed to residents and will instead be construction staging. Levels P2 and P3 will remain available for resident parking.
  • On residential floors, barriers will be built to contain units on the south end of the building. The elevators and two stairwells will remain accessible.
  • Construction activity will begin at 8 a.m. and conclude by 5 p.m. Monday to Friday. 
  • Hutch School operations should be unaffected.
