Located at the intersection of Northeast 8th Street and 108th Avenue Northeast in Bellevue, Washington, Skanska plans to develop and build a 25-story, 50,300 square meter office tower. It will include a private rooftop deck that measures 300 square meters, seven alternating indoor/outdoor exterior balconies, 1,100 square meters of ground floor retail space and four-levels of below-grade parking that will include valet services and charging stations. The project will target LEED Platinum and Wired Platinum certifications.
The Eight represents Skanska’s sixth development project in the Greater Seattle Area and its second project in Bellevue since it began development operations in the region in 2011. Skanska purchased the land for The Eight in July 2018 and received administrative design review and approval at the end of 2020.
Skanska expects to begin construction in June 2021 and the project is scheduled to be completed in fourth quarter of 2023.
Since 2009, Skanska’s U.S. commercial development operations has invested a total of USD 2.8 billion in commercial and multi-family projects, creating more than 92,900 square meters of sustainable and community focused developments in select U.S. markets.
