Final plans have been unknown for what exactly the fate is for the current Safeway location on Bellevue Way. The Safeway will be moving across the street to join the retail space underneath the Avalon-Meydenbauer apartment complex when complete.

Monday afternoon it become clear that Kemper Development Company (the property owner) is actively making strides in researching the location’s environment. A Holocene Drilling truck was present and drilling a hole into the ground taking what seemed to be a core sample of the earth below.

The rumor until now is that a condominiums will take over the outdated location of the Safeway. The area is prime real estate, which is across the way from Bellevue Square, and next door to the Bellevue Arts Museum and One Lincoln Tower.
