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

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.

Revenue Management: Monetizing All Offerings


Of all the departments within hotel operations, Revenue Management may have been the hardest hit, due to the pandemic. The logic goes - no revenue, no need for revenue managers - so many industry professionals were furloughed. If business rebounds in 2021, as expected, then hotel management will have to determine when prevailing occupancy levels justify bringing back their revenue management team. Also, the pandemic seems to have exposed some weaknesses in the traditional RevPAR models. There is a growing understanding that it is no longer sufficient to use a "revenue per available room" model; instead, hotels are adopting a TRevPAR model (total revenue per available room). This model recognizes that revenue streams from other departments are just as important as the revenue gained from rooms. As a result, hotels are looking at ways to monetize any and all hotel offerings - from dining outlets and spas to outdoor function spaces and local partnerships. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine these developments and report on how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
