Gonzaga, partner reveal Seattle development plans thanks to generosity of Miss Myrtle Woldson

Tuesday, January 8, 2019

Gonzaga University and Chicago-based apartment developer AMLI Residential Properties revealed plans to construct a 17-story project with 257 residential units and ground-floor commercial space on a downtown Seattle block of land next to the soon-to-be demolished Alaskan Way Viaduct, the Puget Sound Business Journal reported. The late Spokane businesswoman and philanthropist Myrtle E. Woldson willed the land, which is occupied by two parking garages and surface parking, to Gonzaga in 2014, a gift valued at the time at $55 million. AMLI is entering into a long-term ground lease with Gonzaga to redevelop the site.
