Puget Sound Regional Council gave its Vision 2040 Award to South Kirkland Park and Ride and transit oriented development.
The project was a collaboration of Polygon Northwest, Imagine Housing, King County, Kirkland, Bellevue and A Regional Coalition for Housing (ARCH).
It was completed this year and includes a three-story, 530-stall parking garage; renovation of the surface parking lot with bike storage and EV charging stations; a new bus loading area; and 182 units of market-rate housing and 61 affordable units.
The PSRC award is intended to recognize real-life projects that demonstrate how smart growth can improve the quality of life.
“This project is exemplary in hitting multiple goals of increased low income and affordable housing, access to transit, reduced carbon footprints and the opportunity for recreation by being located next to walking and biking trails on the Cross Kirkland Corridor,” said King County Council Vice Chair Jane Hague.
The team includes Polygon with Weber Thompson, Imagine Housing with SMR Architects, Spectrum Development Solutions, Kantor Taylor, FPI Management and WG Clark Construction.
