Bellevue, Wash. — The Bellevue Collection has received a $526 million construction-to-permanent loan to expand the 4-million-square-foot, mixed-use property in Bellevue.
The new 1.5-million-square-foot phase will be known as the Lincoln Square Expansion. The development, which is currently underway, will include a 41-story multifamily/W Hotel tower, a 31-story trophy office tower, and a three-level retail podium, which will be anchored by a luxury theater and chef-driven restaurants.
The retail podium and towers will sit above a six-level underground parking garage that is contiguous with more than 4,000 existing subterranean parking spaces. An affiliate of CPPIB Credit Investments Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB), provided the financing.
The single source of capital was attractive to the borrower because it removed syndication risk and provided a single point of contact. Dave Karson, Alex Hernandez and Chris Moyer of Cushman & Wakefield represented the borrower, Kemper Development Co.
