Touchstone eyes big project with two towers in Bellevue

Two high-rise towers with hotel and office space have been proposed for a site at 600 108th Ave. N.E. in downtown Bellevue.

The Seattle developer Touchstone is listed in permitting documents filed with the city for Bellevue 600. NBBJ is listed as the contact on a public notice related to the project.

Bellevue 600 would have a 34-story, 800,000-square-foot office building and a 41-story, 491,000-square-foot hotel with 500 rooms. The new structures would be designed to “work in concert” with the 10-story Bellevue Corporate Plaza, which is now on the site. Permit documents said a three-story parking garage would be demolished.

Touchstone did not respond to a request for comment.

Equity Commonwealth, a Chicago-based real estate investment trust, owns the site.

A master development plan application was completed earlier this month. A public meeting on the project is set for 6:30 p.m. March 10 in Bellevue City Hall, 450 110th Ave. N.E.

Touchstone is building large, mixed-use projects like this in Seattle. Two of its biggest projects — Hill7 and Tilt 49 in the Denny Triangle — have multiple uses. Hill7 combines an 11-story office tower and 14-story hotel. Tilt 49 has an 11-story office building and a 37-story apartment tower.
