Bellevue TowersBellevue, Washington
Bellevue Towers is a pair of 42- and 43-story mixed-use condominium towers, which rest upon a podium of housing, retail and parking. The 1.5 million square foot project contains 542 residential units, 20,000 square feet of retail and approximately 880 parking stalls.
Of the 542 living units, 250 are within the north tower, 262 are within the south tower, and 30 units are within the six-story podium. The project received a LEED Gold rating for features such as on-site stormwater treatment, open space, and use of local and regional materials.
The two buildings are iconic not only because of their design, but because they are a “pair.” The design is cohesive with the skyline of the city, yet the silhouette is distinguished—helping transform its location into a 24-hour, mixed-use neighborhood. Project amenities include recreational facilities, rooftop and landscaped gardens, walking paths, and flexible, community/work spaces.
GBD formed a joint venture with MulvannyG2 Architecture for the design of Bellevue Towers, which was completed in October 2009.
