GIF PARTNERS WITH NON-PROFIT HOUSING PROVIDERS
ON SEATTLE GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE VISION
BY ROHAN LILAUWALA, PROGRAM MANAGER, GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE FOUNDATION

T

he Green Infrastructure Foundation is pleased to announce the release of the report Community, Equity, and
Placemaking with Green Infrastructure in Seattle: A Visualization and Cost-Benefit Analysis. The report is the result of
the legacy project of the CitiesAlive 2017 Annual Green Roof
and Wall Conference.
The report was an effort by GIF, in partnership with Seattlearea non-profit housing providers Capitol Hill Housing and InterIm CDA, and looked at the transformative potential of green
infrastructure in three Seattle-area neighborhoods: Capitol Hill,
Japantown/International District, and White Center.
Teams of interdisciplinary experts and local stakeholders
convened for a one-day exercise where they reimagined their

communities using green infrastructure. A cost-benefit analysis
was conducted on the results, showing a compelling argument
for green infrastructure.
The analysis from one site, in the Capitol Hill neighborhood
of Seattle, found that a $1.01 million investment in construction,
with an annual maintenance cost of $21,700, would provide a
net benefit of $3.52 million over 50 years, while creating 33 jobyears of employment over that period.
This project was generously supported by the King County
Department of Natural Resources and Parks Wastewater
Treatment Division, Arup, MIG | SVR, GGLO Design, CMG
Landscape Architecture, and Urban Horticulture Consulting.
