This project repurposes the Jane Addams building as a comprehensive middle school for northeast Seattle. Originally opened in 1949 as a junior high school in the Shoreline School District, Jane Addams was then annexed into Seattle Public Schools in 1954. Since closing as a middle school in 1983, the building has housed a variety of community programs, an alternative K-12 school and the Hazel Wolf K-8 program.
