Issaquah, WA

Now Leased


2005 Poplar is a brand new 4 story, approximately 68,876 sq. ft mixed-use office building anchored at the gateway to Issaquah with I-90 visibility.   This iconic NW-style property is located in the Hyla Crossing neighborhood just off I-90 exit 15 and is extremely convenient to access. One of the unique features of the building will be a 4-story, glass “irresistible” enclosed staircase creating a lantern effect at night that will be seen from I-90. With a high-end gym next door and access to in-building showers, bike racks and EV charging stations, this building will promote a healthy and balanced, productive day that we all seek. Another important aspect of this building is its HVAC DOAS (Dedicated Outdoor Air System) which continuously brings 100% fresh air from the outdoors.

Additional amenities include easy access on/off I-90, walking distance to Issaquah transit center, access to trails and proximity to Lake Sammamish State Park. It is an ideal location for clients, customers, and employees alike with a diversity of restaurants and pubs nearby, various fitness options, several banks, shops, and hotels.

Why 2005 Poplar?

Windows, natural daylighting and views are a subtle depiction of a company’s emphasis on wellbeing and its ties to a community. All of these are powerful signals about an organization’s values and priorities. These are the beacons that attract talent and the messages that influence people’s engagement and ability to innovate over time. 2005 Poplar was designed with this in mind to deliver a paramount experience in the workplace and one that creates collaboration, energy and focus.
