According to Ms. Dietz, a City planner: 

"Redmond’s community evolution is successfully weaving the small town feel of older, established neighborhoods with the energy and vitality of Redmond’s two main urban centers, Downtown and Overlake. We are now planning for the next stage of transformation in SE Redmond- known as Marymoor Village. 

"A major goal of the City is that this neighborhood be encouraged to transform, over time, into a cool/eclectic neighborhood – with a cool/eclectic identity. As such, and because LMC-Marymoor may be the first development in the neighborhood, the design of this development will set a tone and stage for future development."

Marymoor Village (map and Design Review Board memo) is currently a diverse mosaic of manufacturing, education, distribution industrial, and religious uses. Although Marymoor Village is not envisioned to become an urban center like Downtown and Overlake, it will begin to feature additional and more diverse uses and buildings than currently present. Much like a small urban village, the area already offers many options but needs to prepare for a light rail station and accompanying interest in transit-oriented development.

The vision is for Marymoor Village to be a more walkable place that features opportunities for nearby living, employment, gathering, education, shopping, and rapid transit connections to Redmond and central Puget Sound. 

The future light rail station is a large part of the Marymoor Village vision. The station will be at grade and located adjacent to Marymoor Park and SR-520 near the west end of NE 70th St, close to multiple regional trails. In keeping with Redmond’s focus for a neighborhood feel, the city is working with Sound Transit to accommodate the 1,400 planned parking stalls in two separate garages in order to reduce the scale of the parking structures.

*The LMC-Marymoor proposal is for 524 total parking stalls. The majority of the parking will be in 1-story underground structure that spans the footprint of the site. 45 of those stalls are in an above ground structure in the center of one of the buildings (wrapped with retail and residential).  Gary Lee, city planner.
