Claudio Guincher's Continental Properties is planning a five-story apartment building at 1000 100th Ave. N.E., about a block from Bellevue Square.

Guincher said in an email that design is just starting, but it will have about 135 units and 199 underground parking spaces.

A rooftop deck will have barbecues and views of the skyline.

Guincher said he wants to start construction in about a year.

On Tuesday, an entity related to Bellevue-based Continental Properties paid $11.8 million for the land, which today is home to the 24-unit Sumiyoshi Apartments.

Here is the project team: Studio Meng Strazzara, architect; CT Engineering, structural engineer; Pace Engineers, civil engineer; Emerald City Engineers, mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineer; Morrison Hershfield, building envelope; Thomas Rengstorf & Associates, landscape architect; and Sechrist Design Associates, interior designer.

In addition to this project, Continental Properties has 710 apartments and condos in various stages of design and construction in Seattle and Kirkland. Here are the projects under construction: Tower 12 Apartments, a 314-unit tower in Belltown that will open in May 2017; Vik Condominiums, a 117-unit condo project in Ballard that will open in January; and Capri Apartments, a 73-unit project in Kirkland that will open in December.

Continental Properties plans to break ground next summer on 78 units in Uptown and 128 units in downtown Kirkland.
