First waterfront condos in 20 years coming to Kirkland

May 6, 2020

A nine-unit condominium development on Kirkland's waterfront is planned following the sale of an acre of property that fetched $11.84 million. Five of the homes have been reserved, according to BDR Homes of Bellevue, the homebuilder.

The project, which is in the approval process, will include homes ranging in size from 2,100 to 4,900 square feet. As part of the development, BDR plans to restore l25 linear feet of waterfront that includes a dock. MZA Architecture, with offices in Bellevue and Shanghai, is the designer.

Each 2- or 3-bedroom unit will have indoor-outdoor living spaces with retractable, floor-to-ceiling glass walls and built-in BBQ, heaters, and fire table. Two parking spaces in an underground, secure garage are included with eight of the units; the penthouse receives three parking spots.

Prices will start at $3 million and will top out at $10 million, with most of the homes in the $3.5-to $6.5 million range.

The site is south of downtown and about a mile from Google's current Kirkland campus. The tech giant is expanding its footprint there and in other nearby cities.
