Overview of Redmond
Take the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge due east from Seattle for about 15 miles and you'll find yourself in Redmond, Washington - a suburban refuge from the big city, affectionately dubbed the "bicycle capital of the Northwest". Commonly known as the home of both Microsoft and Nintendo of America, the city of Redmond is much more than a few high-tech corporate campuses. This suburban oasis is truly the epitome of everything that's great about living in the Pacific Northwest. With beautiful, sprawling hiking and cycling trails, outdoor concerts, family events, and top-shelf shopping destinations, Redmond, Washington is an ideal place to rent an apartment or home in the greater King County region.
Living in Redmond, WA
Redmond is bordered by Kirkland to the west, Bellevue to the southwest, and Sammamish to the southeast, while unincorporated areas of King County lie to the north and to the east. The city is located on the north end of Lake Sammamish, and the Sammamish River runs through the center of the city. Founded in 1871, Redmond's origins as a small logging town gave way to a thriving suburban refuge just on the other side of Lake Washington from the Seattle metro area with the completion of the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge in 1963. Since then, Redmond has seen a population boom that continued into the 1990's, as both high tech companies and urban commuters made the city their home.
Redmond's main two urban centers can be found in the Overlake and Downtown neighborhoods. The neighborhoods of Education Hill, Grass Lawn, Idylwood, and North Redmond are predominantly residential in layout, while the Bear Creek, Sammamish Valley, Southeast Redmond, and Willows / Rose Hill neighborhoods are more varied in use, and include business parks, industrial manufacturing, and some residential areas as well. A primarily affluent area, due to the high number
Redmond Work & Study
If you are looking for a rental apartment or home in a tech-driven town with a rural vibe, this is the place for you. Due in part to the beautiful surroundings and the business-friendly income tax laws of Redmond, many large technology companies now call the city their home, and employ the majority of the workforce in the area. It would be nearly impossible to discuss working in Redmond without mentioning the Microsoft Corporation: of the 55,000 residents of the city, more than half are employed by the software giant. Other technology companies like Nintendo of America, Honeywell and AT&T have significant presences in the city as well.
As such, it comes as no surprise that education is a cornerstone of Redmond's framework. As part of the Lake Washington School District, which also encompasses Kirkland and parts of Sammamish and Woodinville, Redmond is home to ten primary schools, three junior high schools, and Redmond High School. Redmond also boasts several private primary and high schools, as well as the DigiPen Institute of Technology, which provides a focus on computer science, computer engineering, and art with emphasis in creating video games. The secondary campus of Lake Washington Technical College, offers over a hundred degree and certificate options in information technology, business, service and arts.
Redmond Cost of Living
With a high standard of living, amazing natural surroundings, temperate weather, close proximity to a major metropolitan area, and very low crime rates, it's no surprise that Redmond has a slightly higher cost of living than the national average. Despite this, finding affordable rental apartments and homes in Redmond is not a difficult task for nearly any budget. One-bedroom rentals can be found for under $1000 per month, and two-bedroom units are available for less than $1400. Whether you're after the craftsman style suburban homes and apartments of Bear Creek, the trendy urban vibe of Downtown, or the convenience and splendor of Overlake's proximity to both expansive parks and the city's key business centers, finding a Redmond rental apartment or home that suits your needs is just a few clicks away.
