MainStreet Property Group, a full-service Kirkland-based real estate developer, today announced the opening of the Heron Flats + Lofts, a new seven-story luxury residential building in the heart of vibrant downtown Redmond.

Located at 7662 159th Place NE, the Heron Flats + Lofts features 95 new luxury apartment homes and numerous high-end amenities, all within close walking distance of nearby parks and popular restaurants, cafes and retail shops.

“At the Heron Flats + Lofts, we focused on creating modern and refined spaces that emphasize the easy and graceful flight of the building’s namesake, the Heron,” said MainStreet Property Group president Kelly Price in a press release. “The Heron sets a high bar for quality apartment living in Redmond for our residents. From the dramatic lobby entrance to the back-lit, soaring roof line, The Heron is a must-see for anyone wishing to live in a beautiful high-end and environmentally-designated LEED Platinum community on the Eastside.”

The 131,000 sq. ft. Heron Flats + Lofts features a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes in two separate towers, as well as five two-story live-work lofts on the building’s ground floor.

Located within direct access to the Lake Sammamish River Trail and within walking distance to Marymoor Park and the Burke Gilman Trail, which can be used to reach Woodinville wine country and emerging communities Bothell and Kenmore, the Heron Flats + Lofts allows residents to easily explore the area and spend time enjoying mother nature.

Additionally, the Heron Flats + Lofts is close to the nearby Heron Rookery, a 4.6 acre open space recently created by the city of Redmond and named after a colony of Great Blue Herons that once occupied the site. The Rookery stands at the entrance to downtown Redmond and features an urban forest with a new trail running through the middle of the space.

MainStreet Property Group has also obtained U.S. Green Building Council LEED Platinum certification for the Heron Flats + Lofts. The certification makes the building one of only six in Washington State to reach this status. Green elements include high water-efficiency sinks; LED lighting; low-VOC materials; Energy Star appliances; and a river/drain system flowing into an urban ‘river’ and ultimately storm water.

W.G. Clark was the general contractor for the Heron Flats + Lofts and GGLO was the architect, landscape designer and interior designer. The Blueline Group provided civil engineering services, BEE Engineering and DCI Engineering provided structural engineering services. Additionally, A3 Acoustics provided architectural acoustics services, O’Brien & Company provided environmental consulting services and 360 Analytics provided energy consulting services. Washington Holdings is MainStreet’s capital partner.

Leasing at the Heron Flats + Lofts is well underway via the building’s website, www.liveattheheron.com, and via the leasing office in the building lobby.
