Tukwila Village, a new senior apartment complex by SHAG, has opened.
The six-acre campus, which initially will have two buildings and 193 units, is part of a collaboration with the City of Tukwila in the redevelopment of a section of land on Tukwila International Boulevard that also includes a new King County Library System building and a community plaza and cafe. Two more apartment buildings will be added by 2020, bringing the total number of units to 300-plus, according to SHAG officials.
