Island-owned Dollar Development is expected to complete the new Mercer West’s 85 apartment homes in the summer of 2013. The latest addition to the Town Center is adjacent to the 150-unit building, ‘The Mercer,’ which was completed in 2007.

Mercer West will have courtyards, a large barbecue area, in addition to the high-end amenities in the existing Mercer building, which will be connected by a skybridge.

The mid-rise building will be constructed of concrete and steel, and features a high-efficiency heating and cooling system.

“The needs of the Mercer Island residents are evolving, and Dollar Development along with staff is doing more than expected to meet those needs as they change,” said Mike Teano, Riverstone’s regional manager who oversees The Mercer.

As for Dollar Development, they continue to keep an eye toward the future and have exciting plans for future concepts and sustainable urban growth for the area, a press release said.

“The next five years will solidify Mercer Island as a world-class area and will bring great value to those who already are benefiting from the significant investments being made into these core developments like The Mercer Luxury Apartment Homes,” said  Lisa Vivolo, community manager at The Mercer.

Mercer West already has a waitlist for future residents and is shooting for early July for hard hat tours. For more information, call (206) 232-9555.

Construction continues on the Mercer West, expected to be completed this summer.
