January 15, 2014 Meeting Recap

On January 15, 2014, the public provided feedback to Capstone's two park concepts.  A presentation was provided by the design team followed by small group discussions and opportunities to comment on the proposed park concepts.

December 4, 2013 Meeting Recap

On December 4, 2013, a public meeting was held to gather ideas from the public on park programming and park elements for this park. During this meeting, the City provided background information on planning that has occurred for Overlake Village and Capstone Partners presented information about the proposed development and they described the park site.

After the presentations and a question and answer period, the public was asked to participate in various ways to explain how they would use the park, how a resident of an apartment building within the development might use the park, and how an employee of an adjacent office building might use the park.  The public was also asked to provide feedback on images of park features from other places that might fit in this new Redmond park. 

Master Plan Background

Capstone Partners has begun implementing a Master Plan approved in December 2011 for its 28-acre site north of NE 24th Street between 152nd Avenue NE and 156th Avenue NE, called Esterra Park. This is the former site of a Group Health hospital.  Group Health sold the site to Capstone and other investors in March 2013.

The Master Plan envisions a phased redevelopment of the property that would ultimately result in about 1,400 residences, 1.2 million square feet of office and retail uses, a hotel and conference center, a 2.67-acre park, and associated infrastructure.  The Master Plan also requires the developer to create a total of 10 acres of new forest in Redmond as mitigation for removal of the existing trees, in addition to replantings on site.

Capstone has started further site and building design which will allow for a 2013 or early 2014 beginning for construction. The City’s role is to review specific plans for the proposed development to ensure consistency with the Master Plan and Development Agreement as well as the city’s Zoning Code.
