Henbart opens Edmonds luxury units

Seattle-based developer Henbart announced the recent opening of The Village at Westgate, at 10032 Edmonds Way in Edmonds.

The four-story, 91-unit apartment building includes 3,100 square feet of retail. It’s in the Westgate neighborhood, next to the McDonald’s. The ferry terminal and Sounder rail station are both about a 10-minute drive west.Studio Meng Strazzara was the architect, and W.G. Clark Construction Co. was the general contractor. Henbart acquired the almost 1.3-acre site in 2015 for a little under $4.5 million.

Henbart calls the project “a four-story luxury apartment community” where residents will have “oversized bathrooms with linen closets, high-end finishes such as quartz countertops, full-size front loading washer and dryer in every unit, and stylish two-toned cabinetry with oodles of storage.”

Other amenities include a business conference room, fitness center, gaming lounge, dog wash station, and a terrace with barbecue areas that opens to an indoor lounge.

The project is the first to benefit from the city’s recent upzone for Westgate. It’s also the first apartment project in Edmonds to participate in the multifamily tax exemption program. That means 20% of units will be priced for those earning 80% to 115% of area median income.

Henbart’s Mark Craig said in a statement, “As new rental housing is developed it’s important that we provide affordable options for those who make our cities thrive.”

The apartments were 20% leased during construction, Craig added.

Available units run from $1,330 to $2,250, according to the apartment website. Income-restricted apartments rent for up to $1,540 for a 570-square-foot, one-bedroom unit.

The completed project is seeking LEED Silver certification, with LED lighting, low-VOC paints and coatings, a terraced green roof with water-saving native plants, bike room and electric vehicle charging stations.

Another amenity, or design flourish, is an indoor art installation piece, “Elementum I,” created by Western Neon.
