Chicago-based Equity Commonwealth is moving forward on Bellevue 600 in downtown Bellevue, WA. The development is envisioned to include a 450-foot-tall office building and a 435-foot-tall business hotel at 600 108th Ave. N.E. near the Bellevue Transit Center.
The 1.5-million-square-foot project is planned for a site adjacent to Bellevue Corporate Plaza. The 10-story office project opened last year and is owned by Sam Zell’s Equity Commonwealth.
The master development plan for Bellevue 600 has already received city approvals, and must secure approvals on the NBBJ-designed project next. The immediate neighborhood surrounding the site is undergoing tremendous development activity, including new condominiums, apartments, a hotel and offices.
Bellevue 600 reunites Zell with Pat Callahan, who led Equity Office Properties’ Northwest operations prior to the REIT’s divestment to Blackstone. Callahan is CEO at Touchstone, the Seattle-based development company working on Bellevue 600 with Equity Commonwealth.
