Photo simulations

Click the camera icons simulation icon on the map below to view photo simulations of what the Energize Eastside project could look like from a few key observation points in Redmond, Bellevue, Newcastle and Renton.

Please note that pole locations and types may change as the project progresses.

Map books that show the current project design in greater detail, including specific pole locations, will be shared as we submit permit applications for each city. For south Bellevue, Newcastle and Renton, we anticipate submitting permits by the end of August. Please check back on our project website for future updates.
