City role: significant
Ratio of proportion of dwellings and commercial floor area permitted in centers to amount expected given growth allocation forecasts.

Residential. Downtown saw 251 new residences permitted in 2015, more than double what was permitted in 2014 but less than in 2012 and 2013. A total of 445 new residences, all at Esterra Park, were permitted in 2015 in the Overlake Urban Center, the most since the Village at Overlake Station was permitted in 2001. The City expects to accommodate about 8,800 new homes in the Downtown and Overlake urban centers between 2010 and 2030; about 12,500 are expected to be accommodated over the same period citywide.

Commercial. During 2015, Redmond issued permits for about 313,000 square feet of new commercial space; about 4 percent is in the Downtown Urban Center and about 76 percent is in the Overlake Urban Center. Redmond remains on target to accommodate about 44 percent of its commercial floor area growth in its urban centers between 2010 and 2030.
