The design vision for Bellevue Plaza
takes a cue from a 1936 aerial showing the site as a dense orchard with a meandering stream. The structure references the “lost” stream and agricultural history while creating a memorable, pedestrian-scaled urban campus. With proximity to Meydenbauer Bay and the Mercer Slough, the project celebrates the ecology of the region, while reflecting the character of its metropolitan surroundings.
Throughout the project, employees will circulate across pedestrian paths with a central plaza providing a key unifying destination. Vulcan is exploring sustainability certification, public art, and programming that serves the neighborhood.
