Now open in the heart of downtown Redmond is the Triangle, a luxury mixed-used apartment building whose unique wedge shape creates an iconic Flatiron-like statement for Redmond.
Situated near restaurants and markets, just blocks from Redmond Town Center and the future Link Light Rail station connecting Redmond to Seattle, the angular six-story mid-rise features 195 units (one- and two-bedroom apartments, lofts, and live/work units) plus 9,500 square feet of amenities, 4,775 square feet of retail space, and 195 parking stalls. The Triangle was developed by Legacy Partners, a privately owned national real estate firm, and designed by Tiscareno Associates.
From the street, the Triangle makes a striking statement with solid urban character. Each corner has its own distinct definition, with the signature western “Flatiron corner” providing strong urban frontage and street appeal. To ease the massing on the long side, the building is set back on its upper floors, providing a south-facing outdoor amenity space along with a signature two-story lobby expression. Large windows and balconies are part of a whole series of articulated planes and facades, which react to the angles of the site. A diverse palette of high-quality finishes, including ample glass, metal panels, and fused bamboo, combine to lend the building depth, color, and visual uniqueness while maintaining elegant cohesion with its neighbors. Urban sophistication likewise characterizes interiors, whose dark and light finishes and details create settings as intimate and upscale as a boutique hotel.
Because the site is bound by three public rights-of-way, Tiscareno Associates designed a varied pedestrian experience with plenty of retail presence, weather-sheltering awnings, and wide sidewalks along Redmond Way. Retail corners were set back to promote sidewalk seating and activity. The Triangle is also part of the City’s Downtown Couplet Conversion Project, which aims to create a more user-friendly downtown for cars, bikes, and pedestrians by converting Redmond Way and Cleveland Street to two-way streets and enhancing the thoroughfare.
these reasons, not only does the Redmond Triangle stand as a highly visible
portal between the historic and developing areas of Redmond, it is now a
significant catalyst toward more pedestrian vitality in the burgeoning city of
Redmond. “Redmond has been quick to adapt to the growing
needs and attractiveness of the region as a whole,” said Kerry Nicholson,
Senior Managing Director at Legacy. “The Triangle is a shining example of how
smart development, innovative design, and community collaboration can help
enhance livability and connectivity.”
