LMC has started the construction of The Bower, a 339-unit community with 7,000 square feet of ground-floor retail in the northern part of Kirkland, Wash. The property will feature studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments. First tenants are scheduled to move in by late spring/summer of 2020.

A direct-access freeway bus stop will be available for resident use, with stops throughout the Seattle metro area. The apartments will include wood-plank style flooring, quartz countertops with under-mount sinks, stainless-steel appliances, under-cabinet lighting, as well as washers and dryers. The Bower will feature common-area amenities, such as:

  • 2,800-square-foot fitness center
  • game room
  • resident coworking office
  • conference rooms
  • demonstration kitchen with indoor/outdoor lounge
  • courtyard pavilion with bar and BBQs
  • sun deck

“The Puget Sound economy continues to be one of the most robust in the nation with quality job growth and strong in-migration,” said Brad Reisinger, division president of Pacific Northwest for LMC, in prepared remarks. “Kirkland has always been a strong suburban market with its picturesque downtown, strong schools and access to transit and quality jobs.”
