We focused on creating modern and refined spaces that emphasize the easy and graceful flight of the building’s namesake, the Heron – [setting] a high bar for quality apartment living in Redmond. From the dramatic lobby entrance to the back-lit, soaring roof line, The Heron is a must-see for anyone wishing to live in a beautiful high-end and environmentally-designated community.

– Kelly Price, President, MainStreet Property Group

Heron Flats + Lofts’ premium location offers the perfect mix of active outdoor space and the convenience of a big city. Uniquely situated with Heron Rookery Park to the east side of the site and frontage along Bear Creek Parkway, the site is a short walk to shops, restaurants and groceries at Redmond Town Center.

While sustainable design when simply focused on energy and water efficiency rarely provides elegant design opportunities, at GGLO we think differently. We expand the definition of sustainability to include health, wellness, comfort and user experience to help enhance design.  At the Heron Flats + Lofts we made light a key factor for human wellness, maximizing window sizes to provide ample natural lighting not only in units but in corridors and stairwells. The slight increase in window size gives the effect of a clean modern exterior elevation. In addition, materials chosen for stairwell, carpeting and décor work to enhance design and wellness, while saving energy.

At the Heron Flats + Lofts we are on track to achieve Platinum certification; the combination of all of the above were vital to meet the project sustainability goals, and enhanced to overall design of the project.
