About 54,000 square feet of new commercial space was permitted in Overlake, which was about 40 percent of the total permitted citywide in 2014. Employment in Redmond's urban centers accounts for about 43 percent of total citywide employment as of 2014, down from 44.5 percent in 2013. Employment in Downtown decreased slightly, while employment in Overlake increased slightly and citywide employment increased over 3 percent in 2014. In 2014 the City invested $32.2 million for capital improvements in its urban centers—about 68 percent of what was expected based on budget documents.
