Bellevue, Wash. (November 5, 2019) – Fortress Development, the company behind luxury condo, hotel and retail development Avenue Bellevue, today released new photos of the model unit for the 224 “Residences” that will fill the project’s West Tower. Located on the corner of NE 8th Street and Bellevue Way, the Residences will range from studios, starting at $650K, to two-bedroom homes, starting at $1.3M.  

Avenue Bellevue is currently under construction, and these new images of the Residences showcase a fully built-out two-bedroom model unit, which is available for interested buyers to tour. The model unit is located in the new Avenue Bellevue West Tower Presentation Center in downtown Bellevue at 810 102nd Avenue NE. 

“I am a longtime Bellevue resident, and I wanted to bring something different to the community. This will be the first development of its kind in Bellevue – and the progressive architecture will change the skyline of the city,” said Andy Lakha, CEO and Principal of Fortress Development. “Our West Tower Residences are geared toward professionals, families and individuals who are as passionate as I am about handpicked, luxurious design – and who also want an urban lifestyle in the rapidly changing downtown Bellevue. I would like to extend a personal invitation for interested buyers to come visit our new Presentation Center to learn more and tour this stunning model unit.”  

All of Avenue Bellevue’s luxury homes will feature stunning materials that have been thoughtfully designed by a team of visionaries from across the globe. Homes will feature materials and configurations made from the highest-quality materials:
