Clean Lake

The Mission: To raise awareness about local water quality - and use practical solutions to clean up Lake Union.

Clean Lake Union was founded by local developer, Mark Grey of Stephen C. Grey & Associates. His team has focused their efforts on filtering storm water outflows from the Aurora, Fremont, Ballard, University and Montlake bridges.

Shilshole Development is attempting to follow this lead by filtering one full acre of I-5 storm water runoff adjacent to our latest Fairview multifamily project.


The Mission: To see rural poor families ownagricultural land, attain economic self-sufficiency, realize their God-given potential, and pass onto future generations the values and resources that enable them to flourish.


Through Agros International, a Seattle-based nonprofit foundation, Shilshole has helped sponsor the 120-family village of Xeucalvitz in Guatemala and the 50-family village of Nuevas Esperanza in Nicaragua.
