The Waterfront comes to Main Street

From the (click to view full original article):

The Daily Journal of Commerce has an article about how Bellevue is in the process of becoming one of the premier Waterfront cities in Puget Sound.  It is interesting and very exciting that One Main Street would be at the portal to this wonderful park and waterfront redevelopment.  You will be able to step outside your front door and be a short distance to all waterfront living has to offer.

From Sandy Fischer's article: Bellevue Reconnecting With Its Waterfront

"A new master plan for Meydenbauer Bay, as drafted, would create a vibrant park that strengthens connections between the historic waterfront, the marinas, Main Street in Old Bellevue, Downtown Park and the city’s urban center. Attractive streets, new uses, parks and public spaces would create a remarkable and memorable place on Meydenbauer Bay, restoring Bellevue’s prominence as a waterfront city."

"One of the most dramatic new places would be the park entry plaza located near the intersection of Main Street, Lake Washington Boulevard Northeast and 100th Avenue.* The master plan recommends creating a new urban plaza and memorable connection by removing an apartment complex on a kite-shaped parcel of city-owned land.

The plaza would be a gateway to the waterfront, showcasing art, offering dramatic views of the water and providing a gathering space on Main Street. The structure supports an elevated, stylized pier that terminates in a viewing platform. The plan recommends closing 100th Avenue Southeast to vehicular traffic and building a pedestrian staircase with viewing and seating terraces framed by attractive water and landscaped drainages features.

The historic whaling building would become a centerpiece of the marina district where a proposed reconfiguration of piers and moorage would improve views, accommodate transient moorage, provide education programs and reduce overwater coverage.

The park entry plaza near 100th Avenue and Main Street would offer views of Meydenbauer Bay. The apartment building on the corner (below) would be razed to make way for the project.
The city-owned residential properties between Meydenbauer Bay Beach Park and 99th Avenue Southeast would be converted to park land. Shoreline activities would include a larger beach, playground, and picnicking and sunbathing terraces.

The swim area is defined by a curvilinear floating pier that also provides moorage for kayaks, canoes and other people-powered vessels. An elevated overlook is planned for land adjacent to Lake Washington Boulevard. A community activity building with parking beneath it abuts the hillside, efficiently uses the land, places required parking out of sight and provides elevator access between the upper and lower park areas."

Let's go on an Urban Safari on Main Street.

Via the Seattle P.I. website:  Original post can be found here.
by: Deanna Duff
Seattle Magazine

Long a popular strolling and shopping spot featuring well-loved restaurants like Bis on Main and Mexican fave La Cocina Del Puerco, this area—between 100th Avenue NE and Bellevue Way—is now home to several new stores and eateries (along with an influx of condos).
Relax within the warm, modern confines of Monsoon East (sister to Seattle’s Monsoon) (10245 Main St.; 425.635.1112) and try the addictive drunken chicken dish or indulge in the dim sum brunch on weekend mornings. AtBelle Pastry (10246-A Main St.; 425.289.0015), treat yourself to a melt-in-your-mouth macaroon cookie, offered in a rainbow of pastel colors, or fill up on croissants, tartlets and mousses.
Chocolate addicts have more choices: Amoré Chocolates (10149½ Main St.; 425.453.4553), where customers can sample bite-sized truffles in flavors like Balsamic Cabernet and Seriously Dark; and across the street, Seattle-basedFran’s Chocolates (10036 Main St.; 425.453.1698), where you’ll discover why the artisan chocolates and caramels satisfy the sweet tooth of both locals and President Obama.
Glassybaby’s (10230 Main St.; 425.256.2927) new Bellevue location dazzles with a selection of more than 100 colored, hand-blown glass cups. Choose from hues such as Rubber Ducky or Seattle Sunset, or one of their Goodwill colors, from which 10 percent of the proceeds go to charity. The fashion-forward love local boutique La Ree (11 103rd Ave. NE; 425.453.7868), the area’s exclusive retailer for high-end European brands such as Hache and Réne Lezard, and one of the few carriers of Seattle-based jewelry line Jamie Joseph. Posh on Main (10245 Main St.; 425.454.2022) helps women put their best foot forward with Carrie Bradshaw–worthy shoes and accessories from the likes of Lanvin and Yves Saint Laurent. And for men, there’s grooming salon Flint (10235 Main St.; 425.453.1445), where fellas can watch the game on the lobby’s flat-screen television while waiting to get an executive haircut or straight-razor shave. Both sexes will look sharp (and see sharp) after a visit to Ottica Seattle (10204 Main St.; 425.635.2020), which has an extensive line of hard-to-find eyewear—including the rare, Japanese-based Kamuro brand—and an in-house optometrist. For the perfect gift, head to Arbour (10028 Main St.; 425.454.1510), where you’ll find everything from books to linens—and on a recent visit, an authentic (but vacant!) wasp’s nest.
Insider Tip
Prefer your breakfast with a side of live music? Stop by Gilbert’s Main Street Bagel Deli (10024 Main St.; 425.455.5650) any Saturday or Sunday, 10:30 a.m.–1 p.m., with their most popular dish—a Reuben sandwich—available any time of day.

Sweet Suite

If shopping for a condo leaves you feeling as indecisive as a kid in a candy shop, don't fret. Each week we'll pick a floor plan and tell you all about the features, finishes and fabulousness. Sometimes, we'll even include photos for all you visual people.

This week's pick is the condo located at the south east corner, Suite 405. This is my favorite corner of the building and Suite 405 represents the best home in the stack. What I love about this condo is the abundance of natural light that brings the space to life. The large open dining and living area, begs you to hang out all day and watch the sunlight filter through your floor to ceiling windows. Or better yet, host a dinner for friends in your European style kitchen.

When the weather's warm, you could almost live on the deck that wraps around about half the length of the condo. At 550 square feet, the deck becomes your fair weather living room. The treetops and rolling hills of the Eastside are your view, just above the magic of Main Street.

Of course, all of the same high quality, luxury touches are present in this condo as in the rest of the building. The spa bath in the master bedroom features a huge soaking tub, and not to be outdone by the tub, a walk-in shower big enough for a party. SieMatic cabinetry, slab limestone countertops and glass tile backsplashes complement the thoughtfulness of the radiant heat floors and heated towel racks. Best of all the second bedroom is located at the opposite corner as the master, so privacy is not a problem.

The breakdown:
Suite 405 is a stunning two bedroom condo with lots of windows and a huge deck for entertaining.

Price: $748,800
Size: 980 square feet plus approximately 550 sf of deck

Pending Home Sales Up in Western Washington

via the Bellevue Reporter:

Sep 15 2009

Pending sales around Western Washington during August jumped nearly 21 percent from a year ago and inventory dropped more than 18 percent, according to new figures from Northwest Multiple Listing Service.

MLS member-brokers say those indicators, along with signs of stabilizing prices, set the stage for brisk activity in the next few months as first-time buyers try to take advantage of the Nov. 30 deadline for tax credits.

“The typical August cool down in the market did not happen this year,” observed NWMLS director Kathy Estey, managing broker at John L. Scott’s office in downtown Bellevue. She said agents are busy with both first-time and move-up buyers and they’re reporting multiple offers on homes priced up to $700,000.

One Main Street - Luxury Condos in Old Bellevue

If you are just learning about One Main Street, you might be wondering what all the fuss is about. Well, One Main Street is a new condominium building being constructed at 10,000 Main Street in Bellevue. The building has been designed to compliment the neighborhood - called Old Bellevue - which is what sets it apart from the competing projects in downtown Bellevue.

Main Street has a different vibe altogether. It's where the city began and the place where small, locally owned businesses dominate the landscape. It's a walker's haven filled with cafes, boutiques and flower shops creating a neighborly, small town feel. Downtown park is just a block north of Main Street and Meydenbauer Bay is about a block south. Bellevue Square is just beyond the park, so you still feel connected to the big time shopping that Bellevue is known for.

Topping out at 10 stories, the building is not like the high-rises found in downtown. It's much smaller with an average of only 8 homes on each floor. The intention is to keep the building personal – much like Main Street, where neighbors know each other and there's a real sense of community.

For more information on these luxury condominiums, visit our website or call one of our Sales Agents at (425) 452-6246. Or simply check back here to find out what's happening at One Main Street condominiums.
