Local property owner Vander Hoek Corp. plans to construct a 369-unit apartment complex at the northwest corner of Bellevue Way NE and Main Street in downtown Bellevue, according to permits submitted with the City of Bellevue.
The Main Street Gateway project, scheduled for completion in May 2016, will also include 23,475 square feet of retail space and 625 underground parking stalls.
The 1.9-acre block currently houses six commercial buildings, which are occupied by Cupcake Royale, The Spot Off Main, a barbershop, and other businesses. The buildings will be demolished to make way for the new complex.
Readers, what are your thoughts on this new development? Will you miss these businesses or will you be happy to make way for the new development?
