Construction has begun on Redmond Grand—the first phase of the highly anticipated new mixed-use development composed of 623 residences in six stories on 3.5 acres in the heart of downtown Redmond.
Redmond Grand (16563 Redmond Way), the first of the development’s two buildings, will offer 311 apartments and nearly 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The second building, Redmond Central (16425 Cleveland Street), will consist of 312 residences and approximately 13,000 square feet of retail and commercial space, and will break ground in 2022. Tiscareno Associates, a frequent design partner of developer Legacy Partners, is the architect of record for both Redmond Grand and Redmond Central, which will open in phases from winter 2023 to summer 2024.
“Redmond Grand is in a highly interconnected part of downtown Redmond,” said Kerry Nicholson, Senior Managing Partner at Legacy Partners. “Not only does the community border the Redmond Central Connector, which links all of downtown with public art and bicycle and pedestrian paths, but it is within walking distance to the Redmond Town Center, Redmond Saturday Market, Redmond Library, and just a few steps north of the forthcoming Downtown Redmond Station light rail platform. The community is the perfect blend of urban and suburban, complemented by a convenient transit-oriented lifestyle and modern residential amenities that come standard with Legacy Partners developments.”
Notable about the development is its walkability, a feature Redmond is actively promoting across the city. Redmond Grand will connect to Redmond Central by two courtyards linked via charming European-style pedestrian walkway, lined with retail. Residents will be surrounded by green space, enjoying instant access to an on-site yoga studio and fitness center, clubhouse, pet salon, business center, and audio room, along with a boutique market and more than 600 indoor and outdoor parking spaces and bike stalls.
“The combination of Redmond Grand and the Downtown Redmond light rail station will forever transform downtown’s Anderson Park neighborhood to a “third place” destination with comfortable urban living, places to work, and exciting retail and restaurant opportunities,” said Scott Glazebrook, Partner and Vice President at Tiscareno Associates. "Redmond Grand continues the momentum of revitalization from the core of downtown with the added draw of light rail and Redmond Town Center. This new mixed-use development supports its urbanizing setting through a variety of design statements that transcend typical vertical living experiences by focusing on pedestrian engagement.”
Legacy and Tiscareno also partnered on the design and development of the Redmond apartment communities Milehouse and The Triangle, in addition to the six-acre Riverpark site, which encompassed apartments, a hotel, and office space.
