Bellevue’s booming economy and population growth has been accelerated by two state-of-the- art retail malls which serve not just locals, but destination shoppers from both the local area and outside the region.
What’s interesting is that Bellevue’s malls are located right in the heart of downtown, not in massive parking lots off freeway interchanges.
The Bellevue Collection is comprised of three connected properties; Bellevue Square, Lincoln Square and Bellevue Place. Futuristic sky bridges connect these three retail/entertainment complexes that include a movie theater, bowling alley, and massive children’s play area. Pacific Northwest favorites like Nordstrom, Duke’s Seafood and Chowder and the first retail location for Amazon Books share mall space with luxury brands (Burberry, Boss) and mid-market department stores (Macy’s). Too rainy to ride your bike? Get your sweat on at either Soul Cycle Fitness or Peloton. Regardless of the weather, the Bellevue Collection of stores and space is a great place to hang out.
Also located downtown, The Shops at the Bravern artfully merge Pacific Northwest architecture with European plaza design that brings people together and creates a sense of belonging. When you’re not window shopping, you can spend time people watching as shoppers make their way through luxury designer boutiques like Prada, Hermes Paris, Louis Vuitton, Moncler, Omega, and the only Northwest location for Neiman Marcus offering the finest in clothes, handbags, eyewear and jewelry from around the world. An adjacent hotel and top-notch concierge service shoppers from out of town, if not out of country.
