Mixed use residential building with 102 units, in the downtown area of Redmond that is rapidly redeveloping, between NE 80th St. and NE 81st St. Commercial space and a courtyard on the east side of the building at ground level responds to the adjacent site where Cedar St. is planned to be converted to a woonerf.
Fazio Associates designed the streetscapes, courtyard, second level patios, and the roofdeck amenity spaces. Special accent pavers at the residential entry will highlight and differentiate it, while large raised planters and trees will help buffer the at grade live/work units. The commercial entry area will allow for outdoor seating and opens up on to the woonerf. The courtyard design responds to the design of the woonerf as well, incorporating large raised planting beds, bike racks, and integrated seating and tables. The landscaped area to the west will feature a greenscreen with climbing vines at the northwest section, and a variety of trees and shrubs to soften the concrete wall and provide a buffer.
The second floor patios will feature a large raised built in planter with trees and shrubs to the west, to filter strong afternoon sun, as well as raised planters with bamboo between units to provide privacy. The roofdeck will feature greenroof, raised planters with shrubs and small trees, a firepit and outdoor seating, and a BBQ area with tables.
