Construction for Bellevue’s Spring District brewpub set for next spring

The brewpub building will include a brewery, pub and restaurant and office space.

Development at Bellevue’s Spring District continues after the city approved a proposed office and brewpub environmental review for the building.

The plan was submitted by the development company Wright Runstad and Company, which has been directing and organizing the project. The brewpub building will be 26,613 square feet, with office space occupying more than 17,000 square feet of the project. The brewery will take up about 2,300 square feet with more than 4,200 square feet for the restaurant. Some 50 parking stalls will be provided at an adjacent underground parking lot.

The three-story building will have the brewery and restaurant located on the bottom floor with a beer garden and restaurant patio. The upper two levels will be office space. The project will be the first brewery and restaurant in the Spring District. Construction is expected to begin next spring with the building opening in early 2020.

No tenants have been announced yet for the brewery, but Forrest Carman, representing Wright Runstad and Company said the Broderick Group is leasing the office space.

In total, the 36-acre Spring District will have more than 3.3 million square feet of space with buildings from three to 12 stories in height. It is expected to house outdoor supply chain REI’s corporate campus by 2020.

Other recent projects in the Spring District include the Block 16 development, which broke ground this spring after $107.5 million in construction financing was secured. Block 16 will offer 316,000 square feet of office space in addition to 13,000 square feet of retail space. The project is also scheduled to open in early 2020.

By 2019, the Spring District will have about 800 apartments. The Block 24 development will open in early 2021 and have more than 166,600 square feet of office space. Residential developments include the Sparc which opened in 2017 with 309 apartments, and the ALMI Residential Properties building, which will have 204 apartments, will be completed in late 2019.

The Spring District also will house a light rail station, one of several coming to the Eastside. The Spring District station is scheduled to open in 2023. By 2023, riders will be able to board a light rail train in downtown Bellevue before traveling through Bellevue and crossing the Interstate 90 bridge to Seattle.
