Senior Center Temporarily Closed

Redmond, WA – The Redmond Senior Center (RSC), located at 8703 160th Avenue NE recently underwent an exterior building evaluation in preparation for long term maintenance and repairs outlined in the City’s Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). RSC’s mechanical systems, roof, and building exterior are scheduled to be replaced in 2021. This evaluation conducted by a contracted structural engineering firm confirmed extensive structural damage to the exterior walls and substantial impact to both the lateral and gravity systems.
To allow for the ongoing investigation of the building interior and roof, the building has been vacated and will have limited entry for building inspectors and engineers to conduct further assessment. Programs, rentals, and events will be relocated to alternative locations with the goal of minimal impact to service.
“We will continue to keep the community informed and we are working to minimize impact to services,” said Parks and Recreation Director, Carrie Hite.
The Redmond Senior Center (RSC) was constructed in 1991 and serves an estimated 45,000 visitors per year. The center provides a variety of classes and activities for active adults age 50 or better throughout the day. In the evening and weekends, the center offers multi-generational programs and rentals for gathering and events.
