Amazon currently has over 3.0 million square feet of leased space in Downtown Bellevue. According to Puget Sound Business Journal, Amazon has also leased space at Bellevue WeWork in the Summit II building on Northeast 4th Street.

Newmark Knight Frank, a real estate services company, reported that Amazon occupies floors 8 through 12 of WeWork at the Summit II building.

The Summit II building is next door to the future Summit III building, which is under-construction. We reported in 2018 that this was the third building Amazon had leased in Downtown Bellevue. Summit III features 17 floors and 377,000 square feet of space.

Amazon is set to occupy the former Expedia headquarters, with a 16-year lease, including all 20 stories of the building. They are also leasing office space in the Centre 425 building on 106th Avenue Northeast. Amazon will have office towers located on the east half of the Bellevue Corporate Plaza, Bellevue 600, a property that Amazon purchased in April 2019. They signed a long-term lease for a two-tower development on the site that was the Cadillac dealership, and are leasing office space in Tower 333.

In February 2020, Amazon announced in a blog post that they plan on creating 15,000 additional jobs in Bellevue. It goes on to explain that they designed their Bellevue offices keeping in mind easy access to public transportation, fostering a sustainable lifestyle, and placemaking.

  1. I don’t have a PSBJ subscription, however Amazon moved into the WeWork space in Summit II last summer, so this isn’t really news.

    Currently Amazon only has employees at Centre 425 and this space. They were scheduled to start filling the old Expedia building from October 2020, but that may have slipped due to Covid. All the other leases are for buildings under construction and are 1-3 years from completion.

    There are also reliable rumors that Amazon will take one or both Vulcan projects. These are each +/- 1 million sq ft and together would add another 10,000 heads.
