The Tony Lee Apartments-Lake City Family Housing is a 6-story mixed-use project. It offers 69 units affordable to those making 30% to 60% of the King County Area Median Income. The unit mix includes studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. The first floor includes a four-classroom preschool to be operated by the Refugee Women’s Alliance (ReWA). A roof top deck, resident gardens and solar array are features of this sustainable building designed by Runberg Architecture Group. Walsh Construction Co. is the general contractor.
The building is named in honor of Tony Lee, a civil rights advocate and champion for low income families, people of color, refugees and immigrants.

He worked as an attorney at Evergreen Legal Services, and on advocacy for the Washington Association of Churches, the Catholic Archdiocese and Solid Ground. He was awarded the Goldmark Award for exceptional leadership in social justice from the Washington Legal Foundation.
