Crews tear down old Redmond City Hall; more free parking on the way


The old Redmond City Hall is coming down.

Construction crews will soon raze the outdated building to make room for more free parking in the area.

The new lot will add between 76 and 120 new, free parking stalls at the cost of $1.09 million. The work should be done by the end of the year.

“Our businesses and customers need more free parking that is within walking distance of the commercial core,” said Chuck Arnold, Redmond’s Urban Renewal Manager. “As the years pass, this block will eventually become a mix of housing and retail – but right now, parking is the imperative.”

As the Urban Renewal Plan works to support existing businesses and attracts new investment, it also allocates resources in a Public Parking Fund to adequately serve the growing customer and business needs downtown.
