Goodwill breaks ground on Seattle job-training center

Seattle Goodwill will break ground Wednesday on a new job training and education center, next to its store near Rainier Avenue South and South Dearborn Street.

The three-story 50,000-square foot building will also house administrative offices. It is scheduled to open next April and will increase Goodwill’s training and education space, allowing the non-profit to serve more than the 900 people it did last year. The project’s estimated cost is $14 million, according to Goodwill.

Goodwill’s existing store and donation and training centers will be open during construction. Three years ago, a developer shelved a $300 million plan to build apartments and a Target-anchored retail center on the site.
