Some think that green living requires sacrifices in both quality and design, but modern environmental construction challenges this belief with sophisticated designs. Portland Developer Gerding Edlen’s sleek Bellevue Towers real estate was built to be the first multi-family high-rise achieving LEED certification in Bellevue.
Located on the corner of 106th Avenue Northeast and Northeast Fourth Street, the 42-story North Tower and the 43-story South Tower hold Bellevue Towers’ 539 condominiums.
Developed with segmented glass curtained walls, Bellevue Towers green living bring in natural light while saving energy. I recently had the privilege of facilitating the sale of 10700 NE 4th Street #1608. An incredibly spacious studio, with floor to ceiling window, taking in a fantastic view of the city. Other features included a brand new, high-efficiency Viking subzero fridge, slab granite counters, hardwood floors, and water conservation with dual flush toilets and plumbing fixtures. Access to a fitness center and other amenities make entertaining guests easy with facilities that include a great room, kitchen, dining room, and guest suites.
These amply sized condominium homes come in a wide range of sizes with studios and 1-bedrooms starting at approximately 788 square feet to just over 3,500 square feet for many of the two-bedrooms. For those looking at Penthouses, you’ll find they have sized them well at over 6,000 square feet. Historically; home prices in Bellevue Towers have started in the $300’s with the bulk of homes selling between $400k and $700k.
The friendly atmosphere of the Bellevue Towers real estate embraces the pedestrian lifestyle. As of this writing, Walkscore.com gives Bellevue towers a rating of Walker’s Paradise with a walk-score of 93, Transit score of 59 and calls it very bike-able at 72. That developers created a neighborhood featuring a mix of businesses and areas to enjoy the arts, culture and nature all within walking distance is a key selling point of this one-of-a-kind residence. The Towers boast recreational facilities as well as roof top and landscaped gardens. A variety of views are available showcasing Lake Washington, city or mountains. Considerations have been made for Bellevue Tower’s pets with walking paths specifically for the convenience of residents with animals.
Green living construction is thriving as more and more people strive for sustainability in their residences. Being responsible toward the environment makes people feel good about their choices and anyone would feel proud to reside in the Bellevue Towers knowing that they are both environmentally conscious and stylish in their residence. Low energy bills for the individual as well as the HOA association are additional benefits of buying a LEED certified building.
