Issaquah Highlands Avalon Windhaven

Division 8 embodies the old-style "village" motif of the 688-acre Issaquah Highlands community in the Sammamish Plateau.

Issaquah Highlands

The 14,416-square-foot project is part of a larger development within Issaquah Highlands, known as Avalon Windhaven.

Bordering a village green area, the division features street-level retail and office space with above-shop multi-family residences. The homes have decks with views into and across the park. A wide sidewalk following 15th Avenue East around the park ties together the row of townhomes and stores.

The largest retail space opens onto a small paved courtyard and a pavilion that also overlooks the park.

On-street parking for retail is available on 15th Avenue East. Vehicular and pedestrian access to the residences is from a courtyard behind, that leads off of Katsura Street. Residents can walk through the space to access the group of four single-family homes built behind the townhouses.

Located just northeast of Issaquah, Issaquah Highlands is about 20 minutes east of Seattle. In addition to single and multifamily homes, commercial space, parks and community facilities, the development has reserved more than 1,500 acres for open space.

GGLO Architecture and Interior Design is the project designer for Avalon Windhaven. The developer is Trammell Crow Residential; Trammell Crow Residential Construction is the general contractor; and CTS Engineering is the structural engineer.
