It's pretty remarkable what's happening in Bellevue. Just a suburban downtown. But those two blue ones are just two of seven or eight high-rises underway now in the 400-acre downtown. The u-c number might be around 10 by mid or late summer, not including numerous woodframe projects. That includes three more buildings in the 400-450' range that are already started.

Bellevue is still about half "traditional suburbia" and half truly urban. The current wave is going to turn the tide.

Beyond that, if the groundbreakings keep going according to plan and things don't get overbuilt, it starts to look like a real downtown. Without some "downtown" functions of course, but in terms of scale and density.
