Rainier Vista is a 42-home sustainable micro community in Seattle’s Columbia City neighborhood. The Rainier Vista project began as a partnership with the Seattle Housing Authority in 2010 and a commitment from Dwell Development’s Founder and Principal, Anthony Maschmedt, to build 15 homes using green building techniques and high performance technology that would help homeowners conserve resources and cut costs. The excitement and demand generated by the project led to an additional 36 homes over five years with the last home completed and sold in 2015.
Dwell Development partnered with local architecture firm, Julian Weber Architects, to deliver 42 unique architectural plans for the community so no two homes are alike. Dwell Development skillfully integrated environmentally conscious elements into the process from initial designs to final interior touches, seeking out unique reclaimed and recycled materials for floors, countertops and tile.
The goal of the project was to create a community within the city of Seattle that brings together like-minded individuals who value community, sustainability and modern design. “Rainer Vista was a vision. It has become a reality, and our firm’s greatest feat yet! I couldn’t be more proud of what we have accomplished,” says Anthony Maschmedt. The homes are arranged in micro-blocks and clusters of 4 homes centered around a community garden and informal outdoor gathering spaces to promote neighborly connections. The pedestrian friendly location near the Light Rail Station and shopping and dining in Downtown Columbia City help further reduce the community’s carbon footprint.
