Historic Seattle's Role:
Historic Seattle acquired and rehabilitated the properties in 1989. The "Bel-Boy" project included converting the houses into 47 one-bedroom, studio, and single-room occupancy low-income apartments while preserving the original fine woodwork, shingling, and variety of window styles on the exterior. The project architect was Stickney-Murphy. The project received numerous awards for its successful combining of historic preservation and low-income housing.
Current and Future Uses:
Buildings B - F were sold in 2008. Building A, 1411 Boylston Avenue, was retained by Historic Seattle and continues to be operated as a 16 unit, single room occupancy, low-income apartment building.
