Local Buyers at One88 Prove Downtown Bellevue is Ready for High-Rise Living

One88 Achieves 125 Residences Sold with Approximately 70 Percent of Buyers Coming from Puget Sound

Bellevue, Wash. (May 15, 2018) – Bosa Development has now sold 125 of its residences at One88 in Downtown Bellevue with more than 70 percent of buyers coming from Puget Sound and approximately 35 percent having previously owned at another Bosa community.

As the first luxury condominium tower to come to market in close to a decade, One88’s newest homeowners aren’t moving far. A majority of buyers are relocating from other parts of Bellevue, Seattle, Mercer Island and Kirkland. One88 has also received out-of-state buyers from areas such as San Francisco and Vancouver.

“Downtown Bellevue is really coming into its own. It’s outside the hustle-and-bustle of Seattle, while still being tapped into the culinary, entertainment, shopping and cultural destinations as well as large employers who are helping fuel the area’s job market growth,” said Bemi Jauhal, director of sales and marketing for Bosa. “Buyers at One88 range from empty nesters, looking for a lock-and-leave lifestyle; young families who want access to the area’s best schools; and professionals and entrepreneurs who are attracted to the convenience of city living.”

Husband-and-wife real estate team, Stan Chang and Marisa Ormando, recently sold three residences at One88, one of which is for themselves. As New York City transplants with a son heading off to college, Chang and Ormando are downsizing from their 2,200 square-foot, single-family home in nearby Sammamish, WA.

“I’m a New Yorker at heart, so to me it’s all about catching a late-night movie, walking to my favorite restaurant down the street, grabbing a nightcap at a local cocktail lounge. Bellevue is not the sleepy little town it once was and now we can experience big-city living right in our backyard,” said Ormando. “I’ve always admired Bosa’s real estate presence in Vancouver because there’s a lot of thoughtfulness and care in the design, architecture, development and overall amenity offering. One88 is going to be the most iconic luxury address on the East Side and we’re proud to call it our future home.”

In designing 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 Monument / Azadi Square 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.

One88 residents will enjoy access to approximately 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 and Gaggenau appliances. 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 motorized 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.
