The first images and sketches are emerging for the future plans of Kemper Development Co.’s projects on Bellevue Way.

As many know, the current Safeway location and complex will become major construction projects in the coming months.

Across the street are two levels of Bellevue Square parking that accommodate JC Penny’s as well as Macy’s, or as some might still refer to as The Bon Marché . This parking structure will soon be torn down and accompany the many other construction projects in the area, what will eventually be called, “The Bellevue”.

Both developments are Kemper Development Co. projects. It is anticipated that the Safeway side will include a business tower, and a split hotel and condo tower. Where the parking structure is currently standing will become high end boutique shopping. Some of the rendered (and mos likely made up) store fronts in the sketch are companies such as Burberry, Gucci, and Tiffany Co.

You will notice from the images that there is a glass sky bridge that will be connecting the two projects. Also rumored is to be underground parking at both projects that will connect underground.

When Avalon Meydenbauer is complete (the future home of Safeway) I’m sure you will see Kemper Development company waste no time demolishing the existing site, and prepare for the new projects.


  1. Wow another hotel? There must be a huge demand with the Westin, Hyatt, soon 2 Marriots with 4 blocks of each other…and now possibly another one.

    I love all the new buildings but living in a construction zone for so long is getting old. There are places where both sides of the sidewalk are closed , not too friendly.

  2. This is really cool. Where did you get the drawing?

  3. Wow, 2 new hotels for the Bellevue Collection. I hope the Lincoln Square twin contains some retail, the plans show only spa and business center. Any word on when these projects may start?

  4. Yeah 4 hotels all within a block on the same street? That’s more crazy then a starbucks across from a starbucks!

  5. Are these drawings displayed at the Kemper offices at the mall?

  6. Hmmm. Where did I see this concept of “arrival court” before? Perhaps some more innovative retail development came up with the idea first? C’mon Kemper… make your buildings flow into the city more. Welcome the park. Welcome the museum. Welcome the performing Arts center.
