Bellevue-based builder Quadrant Homes has announced plans to open new communities in Kirkland’s Totem Lake and Bellevue’s Spring District.

In Kirkland, the new townhomes at Vareze have recently opened. Vareze buyers will enjoy minutes-away access to shopping at The Village at Totem Lake, the Lake Washington School District, and campuses of Google and Tableau — both easily accessible by biking or walking on the Cross Kirkland Corridor trail system that runs right next to the new community.

Set to open in March 2020, the townhomes at Lario are located in Bellevue’s Spring District, putting buyers within walking distance of REI’s new campus, Facebook’s expansion, headquarters for the University of Washington’s Global Innovation Exchange, and the new light rail station (scheduled to open in 2023).

“Whether buyers want to take a walking trail to work, hop on the future light rail, or just enjoy the plentiful amenities right in their own neighborhood, these locations could not be more exciting,” stated Ken Krivanec, president of Quadrant Homes. “We’ve done research to better understand our buyers’ priorities; our findings have led us to offer rooftop entertainment spaces, abundant windows, and the latest home technology like electric vehicle chargers and whole home voice control — all of which delight buyers at every turn.”
