North Redmond, located in the northeastern corner of the City, encompasses an area within Redmond's jurisdictional boundary, within King County's Urban Growth Area and in unincorporated King County.
The area is primarily residential, consisting largely of low density and low-moderate density housing. The neighborhood hosts several connections with the historical founding of the region including one original 1909 homestead and a cow path known now as NE 124th Street and developed as late as 1964.
Annexations of this area to the City of Redmond began only in 1995. The length of Avondale Rd NE, from NE 116th St to NE 128th St consists of mixed uses of residences and small businesses such as a bed-and-breakfast and a landscaping material supplier. There is also a small commercial area opposite the neighborhood's southeastern border.
North Redmond is served by parks and trails within the adjacent neighborhoods including the Puget Power Trail, as well as large areas of open space just outside its boundaries. Multi-use trails are currently under development and planned for completion along the NE 116th Street corridor to serve as linkage with existing trail networks, schools and parks throughout the region. The North Redmond neighborhood totals 1.3 square miles with 0.4 square miles existing within the current City of Redmond municipal boundaries and making up about 2.5% percent of Redmond's land area.
