Construction Notice

During renovations to Pete Gross House, some apartments and the P1 level of the garage will be unavailable. The project is expected to last until early summer 2014.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this causes. We thank our patients and families for their patience and flexibility as they face these changes with us. 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 assist you in getting proper housing.

Residents will see the following changes to the building:

  • Parking level P1 will be closed to residents and will be used for 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.

If you have questions or concerns contact our leasing office at (206) 262-1000 or the SCCA housing coordinator at (206) 288-1078.  If we can’t answer your questions, we’ll find someone who can. Please let us know how we can make your stay with us as comfortable as possible.
