Sierra to build Avenue 55's Redmond industrial building

Real Estate Editor

Rendering by Weber Thompson [enlarge]
This perspective looks south at the building entrance from the future new Northeast 70th Street.

Avenue 55 will evidently buy a 6-acre site from Taylor Development at 6900 188th Ave. N.E. in southeast Redmond. There it's planning a two-story, 140,000-square-foot industrial project, designed by Weber Thompson and dubbed Redmond Flex. The proposal will have a virtual design review with the city today.

The team now also includes Sierra Construction, general contractor; Terrane, surveyor; Terra Associates, geotechnical; AHBL, structural and shoring; and Core Design, landscape architect and civil engineer.

No start date or land sale are indicated yet. Taylor has owned the land for decades; it's part of the old legacy 60-acre Cadman gravel property.

About 240 surface parking stalls are planned for the east end of the property, closer to planned future housing development. A bike room is also included, with e-bike charging capacity. Rooftop solar panels and landscaping are planned.

If there's a tenant already signed for what could be a build-to-suit project, “a high-tech user” is the only vague indicator. The business is described as a manufacturing and wholesale trade operation. A small amount of retail or cafe space is indicated off the lobby.
