Demand for Downtown Bellevue Residential Tower Exceeds Expectations Prior to Public Offering
Bellevue, Wash. (March 8, 2018) – Bosa Development announced today that more than 100 residences within its much-anticipated Downtown Bellevue community, One88, have sold during a private-sale period that concluded this week.
Now under construction, the 143 luxury condominiums were always expected to be met with strong demand as interest quickly grew once Bosa announced its second Seattle-area project following the success of Insignia, one of the largest condominium developments in the Pacific Northwest.
“We have been overwhelmed by the positive response to One88 and have recently welcomed nearly 3,000 prospects to tour our Sales Gallery during the preview phase. This is certainly a testament to the demand for urban living in downtown Bellevue,” said Bemi Jauhal, director of sales and marketing for Bosa Development. “Bosa is setting the standard of luxury living in the downtown area. The entire community will evoke the feel of a luxurious hotel through the dramatic and artful design of the amenities and the sophisticated style, form and function of the residences.”
One88’s offering was undoubtedly attractive to buyers with a variety of floor plans. Current inventory is priced from mid-$2 million and sales officially open to the public this Saturday, March 10.
One88 residents will enjoy access to 25,000 square feet of world-class amenities including a two-story lobby lounge, outdoor terraces on the third and fifth floors, indoor heated saline pool and spa, fitness center and children’s playroom. The interiors of One88 reflect a combination of urban modern architecture, timeless style, and contemporary detailing in a subtly cool color palette that uses natural wood and stone to link the interiors of each home to the surrounding Pacific Northwest.
Each residence is personalized with a choice of two designer-selected finish palettes and includes a chef-par kitchen featuring polished Caesarstone counter tops and backsplash with angular waterfall edge, modern vertical grain wood veneer cabinets, Gaggenau appliances and a Thermador wine refrigerator. Optimizing the efficiency of each kitchen is undermount LED cabinet lighting, soft-close drawers and deep utility drawers with glass sides. Expansive windows with framed pockets prewired and optimized for motorize shades, a generous master bedroom walk-in closet, energy efficient LED lighting throughout, Smart Nest thermostat, USB ports in master bedroom and kitchen docking drawer, future home automation capabilities and onsite storage are also included with each residence.
“The public spaces of the building are bold, yet inviting while the residences are open, edgy and entrenched in nature,” said Meghann Day, partner at HBA. “We gained inspiration from the color variations and angular lines of quartz crystal, which you’ll see as a constant design element throughout One88. This is truly one of the most spectacular residential buildings on the West Coast.”
In creating One88, Bosa Development has brought together a world-renowned team to combine superior functionality with aesthetic excellence. The 21-story tower is designed by Vancouver-based Amanat Architect, led by Hossein Amanat who is known for his inaugural project, the Shahyad/Azadi Monument in Tehran. Amanat’s design of One 88 has it poised to become one of downtown Bellevue’s most distinctive towers, inspired by the shape, aesthetic and lucidity of a quartz crystal that is native to the region.
Internationally acclaimed interior design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) brings an illustrious aesthetic to One88. HBA is a leading hospitality design firm and the visionary company behind such notable projects as the Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto, The Fairmont Empress Hotel in Vancouver, B.C. and The Alpina Gstaad in Switzerland.
One88 marks the first new high-rise condominium community to open in Bellevue in close to a decade. Delivery of residences is slated for early 2020.
