Congratulations to KG Investments and their team on completing LEED Core and Shell certification of their new shopping center in Bellevue, WA. The project is a pioneer in shifting the appearance of 116th Ave NE, just over the highway from Bellevue’s downtown core from a strip of large auto sale lots, to a more diverse and dense business district.
This Class A retail project provides 75,360 sf of space and houses REI, Home Goods and Trader Joes. It anchors a new intersection that allows SE 4th Street to continue east and connect over to 120th Ave NE.
Documenting Core and Shell certification can entail a delicate juggling act as tenants are identified and build out and tenant agreement parameters shift during construction. ArchEcology was able to help the project team keep a handle on all these parameters and take credit for the project’s green choices.
