About this project 

Sound Transit acquired property to stage construction of the Operations and Maintenance Facility East. Nearly seven acres of land became available for TOD near the Spring District Station in Bellevue when construction was completed.

Sound Transit worked closely with the City of Bellevue, King County, and A Regional Coalition for Housing (ARCH) to develop a request for proposals for the site and selected BRIDGE Housing and Touchstone as the developers. Their project will include approximately 500 units of housing, over 400,000 square feet of office space, retail, resident amenities on the ground floor, and public park space.

The project will be located across the street from the Spring District, an emerging 36-acre master planned development that is home to corporate offices, hundreds of apartments, and the Global Innovation Exchange, an educational partnership between the University of Washington, Tsinghua University, and Microsoft. The Spring District Station will make it easy for riders to connect to this growing neighborhood starting in 2023.

Sound Transit and the City of Bellevue each provided property at no cost (a collective $12 million value) to support the development of affordable housing on the site. BRIDGE Housing intends to use funding from Evergreen Impact Housing Fund and Amazon’s Housing Equity Fund.
