AMLI Spring District Apartments
ABC members: GFITG; AAA Kartak Storefronts & Glazing; Evergreen Concrete Cutting; Rainbow Federal
Location: 1375 121st Ave. N.E., Bellevue
Located in the heart of Bellevue’s developing Spring District neighborhood, this 330,000-square-foot building includes 204 market-rate apartments, three levels of below-grade/interior parking garage, interior amenity spaces, exterior courtyards, street-level retail, and a rooftop deck area. The building consists of five levels of wood-framed residential space above four levels of concrete. The site slopes two stories from east to west, with street-level garage access from below with the garage built into the hill.
Residential units vary in size from 436-square-foot studios to 1,537-square-foot, three-bedroom units with dens and 12 townhome units fronting 120th Avenue Northeast. The building has reserved car parking, electrical vehicle parking and motorcycle parking. Amenity spaces include a rooftop deck with a pet park, two interior courtyards, conference room, maker space, fitness center, theater and private dining. The building also includes over 6,000 square feet of retail space. Looking toward the future, one retail space was preset for a restaurant tenant by incorporating a grease duct to the roof during building construction.
The design concept acknowledges two different street fronts and addresses the needs of users and pedestrians for these frontages accordingly. The 121st Avenue Northeast frontage takes advantage of the urban qualities relative to the existing Spring District master plan, including a large community park across the street and a network of interconnected and walkable streets. This east frontage includes an engaging lobby entry, retail frontage and a feature courtyard. The uses along 121st are complemented with pedestrian supportive elements such as weather protection and retail identification and signage.
