New Nissan dealership gets design approval
The city has approved a design review to convert the old Bally's Total Fitness building in Eastgate to a new Bellevue Nissan dealership.
According to an approved design review in the city's weekly permit bulletin, the new Bellevue Nissan dealership will replace the shuttered gym at 3235 148th Ave. S.E. and keep an adjacent parking garage for inventory and employee parking. An employee skybridge will connect the dealership and service facility to the garage.
Due to safety concerns on 148th Avenue Southeast, access to Bellevue Nissan will be made at Southeast Eastgate Way by demolishing the old Cane's Motel site.
Project architect DBA Architects states in its application the design will adhere to established Nissan standards and look much like the recently remodeled Nissan of the Eastside dealership on Northeast Eighth Street. Part of the western portion of the Bally's building will be demolished, bringing the dealership down to 34,830 square feet.
The design also calls for a pedestrian plaza at the corner of Eastgate and 148th.
