Today, in an exciting ceremony, the much-anticipated mixed-use development – Avenue Bellevue – officially broke ground, marking the commencement of construction on the $1+ billion project that is sure to change the landscape and standard of living for downtown Bellevue.

Coming in 2022 to the corner of NE 8th Street and Bellevue Way, Avenue Bellevue is a collection of 322 luxury condos, an upscale InterContinental Hotel, and outdoor plaza featuring retail, fine dining and nightlife options.

A new gathering space

The plaza at Avenue has been designed to be the new center of Bellevue’s energy; a place for residents, locals and visitors alike to gather with friends and family for unparalleled food, beverage, and shopping experiences. To date, two restaurants in the plaza level have been revealed, including Angler, the sea-life focused restaurant from three Michelin-Star chef Joshua Skenes, and BUDDHAzen, a new Asian contemporary bar and restaurant from the team behind iconic restaurants such as Buddakan, China Grill, Asia de Cuba, and Tao. Additional retail, including a fresh market, will be announced in the coming months.

Stunning homes with luxury amenities

The 322 homes at Avenue are spread across two towers and will feature comforts and configurations made from the highest-quality materials from some of the world’s leading Italian designers, including gourmet kitchens from Ernestomeda, elegant bathroom fittings from Gessi and Antoniolupi, and customized stylish walk-in closets by Poliform.

The South Tower will house a collection of 98 “Estate Homes”, with units ranging from 1- to 3-bedrooms, while the recently-announced West Tower will feature 224 “Residences”, with units ranging from studios to 2-bedrooms.

Residents of both towers will enjoy amenities at their doorsteps, including a private fitness room equipped with state-of-the-art cardio and spin equipment, free weights and a yoga room, an exclusive residents’ lounge designed for socializing and soaking in the vibrant energy of the plaza below, a private dog run, and valet service. Residents in the “Estate Homes” will also enjoy access to InterContinental Hotel services, including room service, housekeeping service, spa and fitness center access, and concierge assistance. Residents will also enjoy cutting edge technology, including a special app that brings all services and ambiance right through their cell phones.

With places to live, a hotel to vacation in, spots to dine and drink, plus high street retail shops, Avenue Bellevue has something to offer everyone.
