Bellevue mixed use

Some boutique mixed use for Bellevue.

Six-story building with residential units on four floors, an office suite and residential units on one floor, retail space, entry lobby and a mechanical parking system on the ground floor/basement, and a roof deck. 13 residential units, at least some of which will be condominiums.

The mechanical parking is going to be very expensive. Of course Bellevue requires minimum of 1 parking space per residential unit, and additional spaces for the office/retail, so 19 spaces are being provided on this very small site. It really is hard to make infill work on small lots in Bellevue - most lots are enormous but this is one of the few that isn't. Interestingly, a lot of NIMBY comments submitted for this project from the adjacent 5-story Metropolitan condo building which was complaining that this building was "out of character" for the neighborhood. (lol)

It's a shame that this small site required so much parking (a 1.5 block walk from the future light rail station) and thus two curb cuts. This means there is not much pedestrian oriented frontage as there could have been. But thankful that this building is replacing a vacant lot!

Microsoft is planning a multibillion dollar expansion of its Redmond campus, complete with 18 new buildings, (shown with white roofs), a 2-acre plaza and sports fields. (Microsoft)

Microsoft’s multiyear project, which it says is its largest redevelopment ever, is aimed at attracting and retaining workers by creating a more modern city vibe at its suburban Redmond headquarters

Bellevue Super Block - The Elan

This is from a while back. How did I miss this? I wonder if it's still in the pipeline?

On the Block: Things heat up on a big block in Bellevue
Brian Miller - Real Estate Reporter
http://www.djc.com/news/re/bzz.html?id=12100277

The super-block north of Bellevue Square may be the most interesting, contested and potentially valuable in the downtown core.

The last major development there coincided with the recession, when AvalonBay Communities built Avalon Towers in 2009. That project, on the northeast corner, put two towers — 23- and 13-stories — on a four-story podium.

Bellevue has completed what it calls the Downtown Livability Initiative, and now the Bellevue Planning Commission is working out the kinks in the new land-use code. This is often a block-by-block, project-by-project process before developers file their plans.

The super-block measures about 8.25 acres, and is bounded by 102nd Avenue Northeast, Northeast 10th Street, Bellevue Way Northeast and Northeast Eighth Street.

Andy Lakha’s Fortress Holdings LLC wants to build two towers — around 290 and 260 feet tall — in a project called The Elan, with two hotels, condos, retail and apartments.

Girders go in for Bellevue's elevated tracks
By JOURNAL STAFF
http://www.djc.com/news/co/12106834.html

Crews recently placed two 117-foot-long precast concrete girders across 112th Avenue Northeast, near the future downtown transit station adjacent to Bellevue City Hall on Sixth Street.
