Fortress Development’s New Two-Tower “Avenue Bellevue” Condo, Hotel & Retail Project Will Be Home to Pacific Northwest’s First InterContinental Hotel
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.
