Help wanted: residents in Jim Green’s affordable housing projects who can help assess his legacy

Are you now or have you ever lived in one of hundreds of affordable housing units that Jim Green helped build in our city? If so, Tyee journalist David Ball would like to talk to you as part of an upcoming series that assesses Green’s hopes for his affordable housing projects against the outcomes, as seen by the residents themselves.

That means you’re a resident or former resident — or you know someone who fits the bill — of the DERA Co-op, Bruce Eriksen Place, the Tellier Tower, Pendera, Four Sisters, Lore Krill, Solheim Place or Woodwards, nearly 1,000 units of social and affordable housing that Green steered to completion.

Ball can be reached at or 778 318-4673. His report is scheduled for completion in time for the annual Jim Green lecture, an annual event that seeks to build and move forward Green’s ideas and philosophy.
