89 Unit Development Planned in Redmond

A new 89 unit housing complex has been approved by the city of Redmond. The proposed new development on Helmholtz Way in the city’s southwest side is part of the Redmond’s attempts to house a growing population. “Cottages on Helmholtz” is a detached multifamily complex development that would be located on a 7 acre parcel of property zoned General Residential (R-4) with a High Density Overlay Zone. A single-family dwelling and several outbuildings are currently located on the north section of the property. Redmond’s Urban Planning Commission estimates the need for 7000 new units over 20 years to accommodate area growth, and similar future developments are under consideration. Some neighbors have voiced concerns about the potential for an increase in traffic, and the safety of children. While the commission approved the project, Seattle based developer, LEDG CAPITAL, LLC. will have to meet 17 conditions for the development to move forward. Those include landscaping requirements, increased common space, fencing requirements, and, protecting the aesthetic character of adjacent neighborhoods.
