Project Completion: Blackbird Apartments

PC Blackbird

Blackbird is a brand new, boutique apartment community in the heart of Redmond. Sleek, modern units include floor-to-ceiling windows, private patios, and optional air conditioning, with common areas that integrate elements from the outdoors throughout.

Just blocks from Redmond town center, Blackbird is a six-story apartment building with 1.5 levels of parking. Its 154 units range from studio apartments to 2 bed / 2 bath layouts. The recessed base creates private, covered patios for the five short-term corporate housing units fronting the street.

The eastside of the U-shaped building fronts 159th Place and was designed with street presence in mind. Light gauge metal framework supports the hotel units at street level, and a generous area for street-side landscaping and sidewalk creates street appeal. Large, long-span glued laminated timber beams support bearing walls above the central courtyard, which is exclusive to Blackbird residents. Facing the west, the courtyard is completely private from the street. This layout also provides daylight to interior units. All residential units on the eastside of the building include a private deck, while units facing the courtyard include a balcony starting on the third level.

Tenant amenities include a business center with conference room, resident lounge and entertainment space, 24/7 fitness center, lobby with coffee bar, gated garage parking, EV charging stations, golf simulator and bike storage.
