The most notable commercial growth happening in this waterfront community is the new mixed-use Kirkland Urban development, a redevelopment of the former Kirkland Parkplace, just off Central Way and east of Peter Kirk Park. The first phase of the development is expected to be completed in November 2018, and includes two office buildings, one residential building with 190 apartment units and a massive (50,000-square-foot) grocery store. At full build-out (additional phases will be market-driven), Kirkland Urban is expected to include a new movie theater, restaurants, bars and more than two acres of public open space.
