Barkley Company announces the official groundbreaking for “the Weatherby,” its latest addition to the Barkley neighborhood in Bellingham. Located near the center of this growing mixed-use neighborhood, the Weatherby apartment complex will consist of 91 one- and two-bedroom units, a total of 4,500 square feet of amenity space, and 102,000 square feet of residential living space all set on a 1.34 acre parcel on Barkley Boulevard.
The Weatherby will incorporate innovative and integrated design features with tenant amenities more often associated with condominium living in large metropolitan areas. These features will include concierge-like building management, secured parcel room, a secured bicycle storage and repair room, an under-building parking garage, outdoor garden space, and a private entertainment room for parties and larger gatherings. High-end finishes will be featured throughout. A 140KW solar panel array, the largest residential installation in Bellingham, will provide for much of the electricity load of the building.
The Weatherby’s central location will put residents within an easy walk of the Haggen Grocery Store, the Regal Barkley IMAX cinema, as well as the many restaurants, shops, and services in Barkley Village. The Railroad trail, located directly across the street from the Weatherby, provides access to miles of walking and biking opportunities.
“Our team is thrilled about the Weatherby. This project marks another significant milestone for the Village as we add to the vibrancy of this community we call Barkley. This project is the result of the combined and tireless efforts of Barkley Company, our design team, and our building partners in developing a neighborhood that continues to build upon the community-oriented vision of our ownership.” Michael Bayless, CEO, Barkley Company
“We are very excited to be part of this outstanding project team and working with the Barkley Company in furthering its vision of community within Barkley Village.” Kevin DeVries, CEO, Exxel Pacific, Inc.
