Renton Commons aims to expand housing opportunities in the city’s metro area with rents that are affordable to working families in a location accessible to transportation. A welcoming design includes walkways friendly to pedestrians and those commuting by bike.
The six-story building will have 48 affordable units suited for individuals, couples or families, from studio to three-bedroom apartments, with units available to those exiting homelessness.
Common areas in the 46,227 square foot building include a kitchen for community events. On-site parking, a bike storage canopy and manager’s office are located at ground level.
Special features include an outdoor children’s play area. Street improvements create widened sidewalks and will add landscaping, bench seating, bike racks and exterior lighting, underscoring the project’s emphasis on community.
RDF will self-perform concrete work and installation of weather resistive barriers.
