Just a few blocks west of Redmond Town Center, Blackbird is a six-story apartment building with 160-units including five live/work lofts. Two existing buildings will be demolished. The structure will be a concrete podium with 2.5 levels of parking, amenity spaces and light gauge metal frame supported lofts at the street level. The concrete structure will extend to level 2 above grade, and support a landscaped courtyard and 5 levels of wood framed residential units. The building will be u-shaped around a central courtyard. Large, long-span glued laminated timber beams will support bearing walls above the open amenity spaces at level 2.
