Charles Kober Associates designed this $30 million office/retail development for Cumberland Northwest, Incorporated. When built, the office complex contained 240,000 square feet, set on an 11.5-acre site. The Lease Crutcher Construction Company served as the first Building Contractor. The steel work of the complex's first phase was complete by 06/1981; completion at that time was envisioned for 10/1981. By 2012, LMN Architects of Seattle, WA, supervised design of its master plan. According to its web site: "Kirkland Parkplace is an integral part of the city's economic strategy for its downtown. In multiple phases, the master plan outlines a seven-building design over 11.5 acres, with a mix of uses incorporating 1.2 million square feet of office space in five buildings, 175 hotel rooms in one hotel, a luxury sport club, and 300,000 square feet of retail, including a grocery store." (See "Kirkland Parkplace,"Accessed 11/14/2012.)

Kirkland Parkplace's site was bounded by Central Way on the north, 6th Street on the east, Kirkland Way on the south and 3rd Street on the west.
