The Village at Totem Lake offers update on Phase II projects

Property reps gave community members a sneak peek of what’s to come.

On Oct. 4, The Village at Totem Lake offered media and other city personnel an inside look at how construction is going on several upcoming projects.

Phase I of the mixed-use center resulted in new installations including MOD Pizza, Trader Joe’s, Nordstrom Rack and other businesses. The final steps of Phase II, which began in 2016 and were exhibited on the tour, will be seen through from the fourth quarter of this year through next year. Notable additions to The Village will include a Cinemark Theatres location, Sephora, Anko and myriad rentable apartment spaces from Trinsic Residential Group and Fairfield Residential.

Trinsic Residential will be providing 202 apartment units and resources including a fitness center and a club room, with lease opportunities slated to begin either in the fourth quarter of this year or the first quarter of 2020. Fairfield will in total be 670 spaces through two buildings, one of which will open in mid-2020 and the other at the end of that year.

“I think if you look at the property as a whole, it’s a new community,” Paul Brett, general manager of developer CenterCal Properties, said of The Village at Totem Lake.
