The Kirkland Parkplace master plan extends the adjacent downtown Kirkland and Peter Kirk Park into a vibrant urban center. Appropriately dense and oriented for pedestrians and transit, the development incorporates office, hotel, retail and entertainment uses and targets LEED Gold certification.

Kirkland Parkplace is an integral part of the city’s economic strategy for its downtown. In multiple phases, the master plan outlines a seven-building design over 11.5 acres, with a mix of uses incorporating 1.2 million square feet of office space in five buildings, 175 hotel rooms in one hotel, a luxury sport club, and 300,000 square feet of retail, including a grocery store.

Serving a diverse community, the development’s multiple retail and entertainment offerings are planned to unfold around a hierarchy of urban spaces, including a central plaza, publicly accessible rooftop gardens, and tree-lined streets. The prospective office towers rise above the street level experience and embrace a diversity of design expression, balancing the distinctiveness of each building with overall architectural continuity and sense of place.
