  1. Very ugly buildings – not at all in keeping with “Old Bellevue” character

  2. It’s not “Old Bellevue”. It’s on the Downtown side of Main St.. It keeps with the “Downtown” character.

  3. Lacking much else to do, I suppose the people eventually living here will be watching lots of television in their spare time, another “old Bellevue” tradition.

  4. 1960s era style? Why? No.

  5. You would think that “the powers that be” would go a little easy on the bastardization of Historic Main Street. We will soon all be in a “tunnel” because of the cities lust for $$$ and Bad Taste.😩

  6. Wow, nice one

  7. Please keep the large trees that are along Main St. at this location! They are fantastic trees that no new development’s sapling plantings could ever replace.

  8. Agree with Dan. The old Sycamore trees lining Main St and Bellevue Way at this proposed development are not replacable. The developer could try to save a few of them.

  9. All they are showing are 9 token trees. I am surprised the Bellevue code does not make it that a developer/owner has to have 25% greenspace. Already, traffic getting to the mall is really bad. If they did a traffic study, they would realize that Bellevue Way around the mall is seriously congested and that should a development add to the Level of Service deterioration, it should be shelved. When is enough going to be enough with all of these tall buildings?

  10. Fantastic!! I’ve been waiting for this

  11. Love it. We need more of these give the housing shortage we’re in. Bellevue is going to have a great skyline!!

  12. I see that a little bit of “borrowing” of structures at grade was done from the 2nd and University project of Pickard, Chilton and Seattle.

  13. I agree with Joe Beer – Ugly!

  14. Hopefully this will fix the horrible sidewalk marred and unrepaired from the trees on Bellevue Way!
