The Village at Totem Lake

Kirkland, WA

Civil Engineering, Land Surveying, Mixed-Use | 26 Acres

The Challenge

Barghausen was contracted by Centercal/Fairfield Residential for its Village at Totem Lake project. The project included the re-development of the existing 26-acre shopping mall and mixed-use residential area. This redesign was inspired by a luxurious, modern village like environment. With gourmet grocery, high end retail shops, a state-of-the-art theatre and creative outdoor gathering spaces, residents and visitors are guaranteed an unmatched experience. 

This project came with a set of unique challenges. Through our multidisciplinary approach we were able to provide a beautiful, functional final design for our client. First, this was a previously developed site with many unknown utilities. Our team had to navigate an area that contains many layers of peat and high ground water issues. Finally, the project was multi-phased with many different consultants we had to coordinate with.

This project started in 2016 with construction nearing completion in 2021.
