Dowtown Redmond


Downtown is in the midst of a major transformation that will shape its future through 2030. Creating Choice ~ Connecting Community points toward the City’s dual vision for enhanced downtown activity, new transit options and even greater access to open spaces. It incorporates:
  • a two acre park,
  • new trails and transit connections
  • historic, commercial and residential spaces that unfold in and around an energetic and vibrant Downtown.


Several City and private projects in the planning stages are currently under construction. Others have been completed and are either leased or in the process of being leased. Many of the projects are mixed commercial and residential use, while others incorporate innovative elements of mixed use and greens scapes; all of which will create a dynamic City vision as developed through its Comprehensive Plan.
