This large commercial space located in Bellevue, Washington is a 2 million square foot project that features a 42-story hotel/condo structure, more than 336,000 square feet of retail and dining space, a 2,000 stall underground parking garage, a 16-screen movie theater and a sky bridge that connects it to one of the the premiere shopping areas in the Puget Sound. Construction on the project began in 2004, and was completed in 2006. At 2,400,000 square feet this space is one of the largest mixed-use facilities in the nation.
