All are invited to help celebrate the completion of 95 new homes with full wrap-around services in Burien at an Open House for ‘Bloomside,’ DESC’s first permanent supportive housing outside of Seattle, on Thursday, May 23, 2024.

Construction is still underway, with completion expected sometime in May, 2024.

The newly-constructed Bloomside is located at 801 SW 150th Street.

If you appreciate our award-winning local journalism, please…
  • The Grand Opening will be Thursday, May 23, from 2-3 p.m. and will feature speakers.
  • The Open House will be between 4-7 p.m., with tours of the building to learn about its unique features, as well as to meet the Bloomside team and learn about their services and tenants.

According to DESC:

“Bloomside is special in several ways, including the huge, intricate floral mural that will cover one side, and for which it’s named.

“This is DESC’s first PSH outside of the city of Seattle, and 25 of the 95 studio apartments are reserved for veterans.

“Eligible residents are single adults living with disabilities, who are highly vulnerable, earn less than $23,350 (30% of the area median income) and who have been experiencing homelessness for over one year. DESC provides full wrap-around services for our tenants.”

In June, Tenants Will Move In

In June, officials will welcome tenants, consisting of highly vulnerable adults living with disabilities and experiencing long-term homelessness.

    1. Can the citizens of Burien count on you to be the first to make sure there is no trash, drug paraphernalia or squatters outside this building since your such a fan?
