Opened in 1961, Melrose Terrace (originally named Rochdale House) was the first nonprofit cooperative of its kind in Seattle. Founding members commissioned the building to satisfy the needs of residents. Consequently, developer profits were removed from the project costs, and the design continues to accommodate member residents of the cooperative. The building was designed by George Bolotin AIA and Associates in the Modern-style with reinforced concrete construction.
