I think "spread" is a good word.

Downtown Seattle still has much more construction underway than Downtown Bellevue -- not only 14 buildings of 10-42 stories but many that aren't high-rises, though depending on how you define the boundaries of each district you could say the volume is similar per acre.

keep in mind downtown bellevues population is only 3,200 where seattles has to be way bigger. With that we can assume that dt bellevue has more construction per capita.

Of course. Also, if you built one house next to a desolate farmhouse somewhere, that would be a 100% increase.

I always laugh at "percentage increase" comparisons. Like a business announcing that it grew 500% in one year -- do they mean sales went from $10 to $60?

Though I'm just going on a tangent. Bellevue's construction is causing a bigger transformation if that's your point.

I will have new pics by the end of the week.

Some questions.

1. Has the Eddie Bauer Tower construction resumed yet.
2. Has the Technology Tower construction resumed yet.
3. Has construction on the second Ashwood commons started yet.
4. Who is the developer for the Euro tower.
The developer of the Europen Tower is GIS International.

Really. I dont know for a fact. Are you sure you arent confusing it with the 1020 tower across the street. Developed by hanover. It seems like a waste to build two apartment buildings with no condos.

I think some new rental residential units are in order. They can't all be condos.

An article in last week's DJC said that Eastside rents went up 6-8% from 12/04 to 12/05, and that rents will increase another 4-10% during 2006. The article also says that this will bring rents back to where they were in 2000-2001 when the market peaked last.

Plus all the condo conversions have reduced the supply of apartments, and downtown Bellevue is now a desirable, higher-end market to live in.

OK, I've been wanting to do this for a while. I took horatio's post on this page above and transferred the contents to northface's first post on the first page. Horatio did a good job of providing an overview of all the projects in that post, so I thought it would be a good idea to make it the opening post in the thread.

Sorry if people's egos get bruised.

Does any one know what project this is for? http://www.vipbellevue.com/

I saw it in a newspaper ad along with a rendering I didn't recognize. Sounds like it will be a pretty cool project.

yeah, its been a mystery over in the northwest forums. It sprang up on us about two weks ago. Were assuming its phase II of the bravern or Kempers plan for the old safeway site. They arent really releasing to much info, but any time a 30 story building is announced, one cant help but be excited.

Oh, and Microsofts NA sales headquarters are moving to where? BELLEVUE. Downtown to be precise. Into the remaining space at the Eddie Bauer Building at lincoln square. Currently U/C

Here's some pics of the model of Washington Square, when it gets fully built out. The two dark-colored ones are the ones that are currently under construction.

Pics courtesy of needsalife.
