It's been about a year since Dallas-based developer Alamo Manhattan finished the 260-unit Main Street Flats at 10575 Main St. in Bellevue. That mixed-use project is now 94 percent leased, according to a company representative.

Last week the city of Bellevue granted conditional approval for design and SEPA considerations for phase two. Public comments on the environmental determination of non-significance are due by Jan. 5. After that, a master use can be issued.

Construction is expected to begin in the first quarter of the new year. The site for phase two is at 10697 Main St., just east of phase one.

Alamo Manhattan bought the property, measuring just over an acre, last fall for almost $12.3 million. The site slopes upward and south from the corner of 107th Avenue Southeast. Phase two will replace a one-story retail building and parking lots.

The second phase plan is for 165 market-rate units in three buildings, with about 5,000 square feet of retail facing Main, and about 185 underground parking spaces in a shared garage. Parking will be accessed from the dead-end extension of 106th Avenue Northeast, which separates the two phases of Main Street Flats.

The total size of phase two will be about 255,000 square feet, parking included.

The largest building will have six stories facing Main with 83 units over retail space. Next to that going up the hill will be a five-story structure with 74 units. Above that, accessed from 107th, will be a four-story building with eight units in a townhouse-style design.

Pedestrian passageways will separate the three structures, and there will be walkways connecting them overhead.

The complex is designed to diminish in density and height from north to south. The neighborhood is zoned for commercial on Main Street and multifamily development to the south.

The unit mix will be 41 studios, 86 one-bedrooms and 38 two-bedrooms. Sizes run from 513 to 1,894 net square feet. Rents haven't been set, but the range for phase one of Main Street Flats goes from $1,711 to $3,899.

Dallas architect Hensley Lamkin Rachel (HLR) designed both phases of Main Street Flats. Linda Tycher & Associates of Dallas is the landscape architect. The surveyor is Bush, Roed & Hitchings W.G. Clark is the general contractor.
