Meta Block 13 Wright Runstad Shorenstein Facebook REI

Wright Runstad & Company (“Wright Runstad”) and Shorenstein Properties (“Shorenstein”) today announced they have pre-leased their planned 213,000 square foot Block 13 project in the Spring District to Meta. It is the fifth building in the Spring District to be leased by Meta, bringing its total leased area in the neighborhood to over 1.4 million square feet. 

The Block 13 project will be located between Block 20, the former REI headquarters which was purchased by Meta in 2020, and the University of Washington’s Global Innovation Exchange. The Block 13 project was designed by NBBJ and will be constructed by BN Builders as the general contractor. Construction will commence in 2022 and completion is expected in 2024.

“The successful pre-lease of the Block 13 project further exemplifies the considerable demand for commercial space in the thriving Spring District,” said Greg Johnson, CEO of Wright Runstad. “We look forward to providing our tenants with the unique and industry-leading amenities they have come to expect from us.”

The transit-oriented and sustainable Spring District is Bellevue’s most exciting new neighborhood. In addition to Meta’s significant presence, it is also home to the Global Innovation Exchange, which opened in 2017. It also features over 800 residential units and Bellevue Brewing Company’s new location which is scheduled to open in 2022.
