Being surrounded by Microsoft buildings and no foot traffic in the area means you get a quiet, safe neighborhood. The apartments were built in the 80's, and are generic white, beige inside. The walls are very thin and I can hear any sound through them at night. Included with rent is free use of the indoor and outdoor pool, sauna and jazuzzi, small exercise room and basketball court.
10 minutes away from downtown Redmond and the excellent Marymoor park, and 1 minute from 520.
I would recommend Redmond only to Microsoft employees or families: Redmond is very boring and not fun for young, single people.
