Located in Kenmore, Wash., this project fulfills Kenmore’s vision for a vibrant mixed-use village, overall growth, development, and revitalization for the downtown core. It provides an enhanced pedestrian experience, reinforcing an increasingly walkable downtown. The LINQ was a major part of downtown development and received the Governor’s Smart Communities Award for innovative, quality, community-driven design and sustainability principles.
Bold, highly visible wing-shaped roof form on leading corner anchors entrance to budding urban downtown village. Contemporary elevations complement architecture of adjacent apartments and downtown redevelopment projects.
The LINQ includes 94 modern residential units above 20,000 square feet of commercial for Kirkland-based Evergreen Health, meeting resident’s healthcare needs.
It has contributed to residential density essential for development of an innovation hub to attract and support start-ups, and it helps existing multigenerational businesses seeking to expand.
