The historic Frye Apartments are located in Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood. Built in 1908, the Frye Hotel predates the Smith Tower and was the largest hotel north of San Francisco. A Seattle P-I article dated April 6, 1911 read, “The public is invited to call and inspect a hotel of which the City of Seattle may justly be proud; a twelve story Class A building, containing 350 rooms, 200 with private bath, with interior finish throughout of marble and mahogany. A hotel without an inside room; every room fitted with all the modern conveniences… Rooms without bath from $1.00 and up; with, $1.50 and up.”
The Frye Apartments waiting list is currently closed. The waiting list is opened periodically as needed and will be announced on their website and through social service agencies.Last updated on February 26th, 2020

Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.
Generally, households earning up to the income limit in the table below for their household size are eligible for units participating in the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program in Seattle but actual income limits may differ for units at Frye Apartments.
