The Village at Totem Lake Offers Phase II Building Update

Kirkland, WA - Oct 04, 2019

The Village at Totem Lake is excited to provide a Phase II construction update for this multi-year (and long-anticipated!) build (2016-2020). This growing mixed-use lifestyle center offers a village feel and is bringing new restaurants, retailers, grocers, and services to the Eastside community.

“It’s rewarding to watch our community come together,” states Paul Brett general manager, CenterCal Properties. “Shoppers have asked for more fine dining restaurants where they can enjoy date night or dinner or drinks before a movie at Cinemark. We’re also hearing some interest in fitness studios. We’re exploring a number of exciting opportunities on these and other fronts and look forward to making additional tenant announcements soon.”

“At CenterCal and The Village at Totem Lake, we are committed to creating a meaningful shopping and dining experience for the community and to providing a high quality, diverse and interesting tenant mix,” said Fred Bruning, CEO, CenterCal Properties.
