Location: Bellevue, Washington
Bellevue Towers is a twin-tower high-rise development in the heart of the rapidly urbanizing core of Bellevue. DEA provided multidiscipline support for this 1.2-million-square-foot project that includes 550 residential units rising above a seven-floor, mixed-use podium that accommodates more than 16,000 square feet of retail space and parking for more than 900 vehicles. Sustainability was a major component of the overall design, and the project achieved LEED Gold certification.
DEA’s team provided site civil design for frontage on two public streets and two public access alleyways; modifications to water, sanitary sewer, and stormwater drainage utilities serving the project; and development of the site’s Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan. DEA surveyors provided a survey of existing surface conditions and subsurface utilities; developed associated public sidewalk and utility easements and boundary line adjustments; verified the condominium plat area; and coordinated with franchise utility providers, the city, and the Washington State Department of Ecology.
