The Cottages at Redondo project is slated to be the first of its kind for the City of Federal Way. The City has been working with our development team to promote the building of multiple, small footprint dwelling units on single family zoned lots. The Cottage at Redondo will be considered a “demonstration project” by the City – ulitmately attracting the interest of the media, city planners, architects, designers, and especially environmentally-conscious buyers!
The philosophy behind the design and layout of The Cottages at Redondo revolves around simplified living. We strove to design homes and shared amenities that satisfy basic needs, yet encourage an active, healthy, community-based lifestyle. Each cottage is considered a “fee simple,” single dwelling unit with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, an open kitchen/living/dining space, and of course, a quaint front porch facing the common lawn. Each floorplan measures out to approximately 1,100 square feet and each cottage has its own detatched and enclosed garage space.
The site is located at 18th Ave. South, near 296th St. in Federal Way, WA. It’s proximity to basic amenities, public transportation, and local recreational facilities (including Redondo Beach), are all within a 1/2 mile radius of the property. Major transportation routes are under 4 miles from door to on-ramp.
Tom Sawyer Enterprises, Inc., the property owner and manager of the development team, have crafted this project to be a simple “kit-of-parts” for other developers and investors to take to the next phase, which is building.
