Attract the brightest minds, inspire creative talent and entice game changing innovators—that’s the vision behind Kemper Development Company’s mixed-use magnum opus development in downtown Bellevue.

The team excavated more than 475,000 cubic yards of earth and installed nearly three million pounds of rebar to prepare the site for a 10-foot-thick foundation. The first mat pour for the south tower was the largest continuous mat pour in Washington State at the time, only to be broken a month later by the slightly larger second mat pour for the north tower.

The development includes a 41-level hotel and residential tower, 32-story office tower, three-level podium commons area, and six levels of below-grade parking providing over 1,800 stalls. A skybridge connects the new podium to the neighboring Westin Hotel.

Approach Spotlight

Customers Come First

Overall customer experience drove design standards. For example, instead of pursuing the highest number of parking stalls, the team focused on leveraging speed ramps, angled parking, and wide drive aisles to keep customers flowing quickly – providing an easy and enjoyable parking experience as soon as they enter the property.

Breaking Records

At 13,690 cubic yards, the north tower’s mat foundation holds the record for the state’s largest continuous concrete pour, previously set by the south tower mat pour [13,400 cubic yards].

Sky Bridge Installation

A sky bridge was installed to connect the Lincoln Square Expansion to the neighboring Westin hotel. Crews worked overnight on a Friday into the early morning on Saturday to install the bridge in order to minimize disruption to the area.
