I suspect many of the commenters here are artists --and we artist are notorious for kind of sucking at mathematics. There also seems to be some confusion in the early comments about how the income qualifications work.
So I would like to point out:
To income-qualify, an artist's income must be 60 percent or lower of the area median income as measured by HUD, which for King County is $86,700.
So to get a space in these lofts the applying artist must make less than $52,020 a year
. (i.e.: 60% of $86,700/yr)
And, again, that's LESS THAN, not more than, folks.
p.s. Attn Stranger staff/moderator:
Can you delete comments #11 & #35? (Clearly spam marketing BS.)
