KOMO News’ Melanie Biehl offers readers a preview of our View Haus 5 project:
“View Haus 5 offers striking views of the Cascade Mountains. The modern designed units are a mix of three-story two bedroom/two bathroom and three bedroom/two bathroom townhomes ranging from 1,100 to 1,700 square feet. Unlike many townhomes, the five units that make up View Haus 5 are individually designed, rather than mirror image cookie cutter dwellings.”
