The days of free parking while shopping in Bellevue are over. Well…not everywhere, but Lincoln Square has implemented parking fees for guest visitors in their parking garage. This action was spurred by the practically complete Lincoln Square office spaces, which are ready to be occupied by the end of June. The office spaces will be occupied by Eddie Bauer and Microsoft.

Lincoln Square will allow for free parking for the first three hours with validation.  It is not required to purchase anything for validation.  A representative for Lincoln Square’s parking garage stated that anybody may just go into any of the retails stores to get a ticket validated.  If going to a movie at Lincoln Square Cinemas you will be validated for four hours.  Without validation or going over your validation it will cost you $3 for the first hour.

Get ready for lines getting in and out of Lincoln Square.  Lets just hope it isn’t as bad as the Bellevue Galleria.

  1. Kemper Freeman has renigged on his promise of continued free parking in downtown Bellevue. How surprising! And so as the urbanization/ densification sheep fall in line, our quality of life in the suburbs we use to enjoy plummets. But perhaps the million dollar condo owners won’t mind, they’re condos come with parking spaces! Heh.
