The future is rising over Northeast Eighth Street in Bellevue in a pair of high-rise towers that will soon be home 85,000 square feet of retail and fine dining, the first InterContinental Hotels & Resorts in the Pacific Northwest, and 365 condominium homes that span a variety of price points while elevating the standard of urban living to heights never before seen in the city.
The colossal project known as Avenue Bellevue is more than just a collection of dwellings. It was conceived and designed be the new center of Bellevue energy and a premier downtown destination — the focal point of a new lifestyle and a new brand of luxury urban living.
“I can’t think of many places in the world that offer as good a quality of life as Bellevue,” says Andy Lakha, CEO of Fortress Development, the company behind the development. “As a Bellevue resident for more than 20 years, I am deeply committed to the future success of the community — and Avenue Bellevue is the biggest and most important project of my life. We are creating something that will set a new standard for hospitality and residential design in the Pacific Northwest.”
Lakha says the project is on target to begin occupancy in spring 2023.
For buyers seeking top-tier luxury living in a class by itself, exclusive Estate Homes are planned in the south tower at Avenue Bellevue.
With the InterContinental Bellevue at Avenue serving as a podium, Estate Homes come in one-, two- or three-bedroom designs up to 2,997 square feet.
Each Estate Home is designed to deliver a state-of-the-art experience of custom comfort that exudes sophisticated synergy and chic urban elegance. Luxurious open layouts feature custom-made Italian Ernestomeda cabinetry; integrated Gaggenau kitchen appliances; Gessi bathroom fixtures and showers that evoke a spa experience;
