Kebero Court, owned and managed by the Seattle Housing Authority (SHA), is the first new residential building opened as part of SHA’s Yesler Terrace redevelopment of 30 acres near downtown Seattle. Kebero Court was completed in April of 2015 and that month began welcoming current and returning Yesler Terrace residents, along with residents new to the community. Kebero Court was named for a style of drum important to cultural traditions in East Africa, reflecting the heritage of many who will call Kebero Court home or who live and work in the surrounding neighborhood.

Kebero Court features:

  • Six-story apartment building and three townhome buildings
  • 103 apartments in total
  • Mix of 1, 2, 3, and 4 bedroom units
    • 83 subsidized units for households making 30 percent or less of area median income, withpriority for Yesler Terrace residents previously relocated to enable development
    • 20 affordable units for households making 60 percent or less of area median income
  • Community gathering room
  • Central courtyard and playground
  • On-site management office
  • Advanced ventilation systems for improved air quality
  • A choice of non-carpeted units for households with respiratory health considerations
  • Parking garage with 55 parking spaces, free to residents

  • Double and triple pane windows to reduce noise and conserve heat
  • Consistency with environmental and sustainability building standards
  • 1,312 square-foot green roof system that absorbs rainwater and helps to lower urban air temperatures

Kebero Court is designed to accommodate individuals and a range of family sizes. The apartments suited for large families have their own private entries, allowing easy access to the outdoors and the playground for children. The courtyard located in the interior of the building complex also includes beautiful landscaping, pedestrian walkways, low-wall seating and outdoor lighting. All apartments in Kebero Court have outlooks to the courtyard or surrounding neighborhood, and many units feature views of south Seattle and Mt. Rainier.
