USA, Bellevue, Washington. December 10, 2018

Fortress Development announced new details about Avenue Bellevue, its luxury mixed-use project in downtown Bellevue, Washington. Located on the northwest corner of Bellevue Way and 8th St. - just opposite Bellevue Square, Lincoln Square and Bellevue Place - the two-tower development will boast 332 luxury residences and the Pacific Northwest's first-ever InterContinental® Hotel (www.intercontinental.com). With 200 properties open globally and another 63 in the pipeline, InterContinental® Hotels & Resorts is the world's largest luxury hotel brand. 

"As a Bellevue resident for more than 20 years, I am deeply committed to the future success of the community - and Avenue Bellevue is the biggest and most important project of my life. We are creating something that will set a new standard for hospitality and residential design in the region," said Andy Lakha, CEO and Principal of Fortress Development. "Growing up in Pakistan, my entire world view of luxury was shaped by the InterContinental Hotel in Karachi, which at the time was the country's only five-star hotel. I am delighted to be able to introduce this revered luxury brand to the Pacific Northwest for the first time." 

Avenue Bellevue's InterContinental Hotel will feature 251 guest rooms, full-service spa and fitness center, meeting space and other luxury amenities.

Architecture & Design: Wellness is Key


Like every other facet of hotel operations, architecture and design firms are adapting their work to ensure the safety and well-being of both guests and staff. New ways to bring Wellness into hotel spaces are being explored and these solutions are taking on many forms. Hotel designs are incorporating more open floor plans, open air spaces, high ceilings, outdoor areas and operable walls into their spaces. Guests no longer want to be packed into tight areas. More "biophilic" elements are also being incorporated, offering guests the sense of being outdoors. Another trend is the reimagining of guest rooms to support remote work capabilities. Some hotels are converting empty guest rooms into office spaces, complete with effective lighting and suitable backgrounds for video conferencing. Dedicated Zoom Rooms are also becoming increasingly popular. The main goal is to provide guests with a positive experience in a space that feels safe and comfortable. These are some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
