Residential Towers Planned for Bellevue Square

According to an article in the Puget Sound Business Journal, Kemper Development has plans to build two 14 story residential towers in Bellevue Square. Kemper’s plans also include  250,000 sf of retail space, and the residential buildings would be constructed over a three story podium, and would include 168 units in each tower. Along with the commercial space, there are also plans for a 55,000 sf common area, and 1,820 below ground parking stalls.

This will mark the first housing units at Bellevue Square, which is the fourth largest mall in this region. According to the Journal, when Kemper purchased the land for expansion, they said they would be using the property for parking, and would eventually redevelop the space into a mixed-use luxury retail project. Stay tuned for updates on development.
