(SEATTLE) – Hines, the international real estate firm, today announced that along with a subsidiary of funds managed by Oaktree Capital Management, L.P. (“Oaktree”), it has acquired Main Street Flats, a luxury multifamily complex in Bellevue, Washington.
Main Street Flats consists of 425-units featuring a mix of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments. Residents also enjoy access to a rooftop terrace with spectacular city views, a state-of-the-art fitness center and a resident lounge. The ground floor features 12,000 square feet of retail space.
“The Eastside office market, including downtown Bellevue, is experiencing unprecedented growth from many of the world’s largest technology tenants, and this influx of new jobs is driving residential demand in premium locations such as Bellevue,” said John Coombs, director at Hines. “We have long held a strong conviction for the Bellevue submarket and believe our timing, with all of the momentum on the Eastside, couldn’t be better.”
Bellevue is currently one of the most active submarkets in the Seattle area. Main Street Flats is centrally located with immediate access to employers, transportation, amenities and top-rated schools, offering its residents the highest quality living experience.
“We continue to seek high quality assets in strategic markets with strong fundamentals that have the potential to provide outsize rental growth for our income focused core plus strategy,” said Mark Jacobs, managing director and co-portfolio manager with Oaktree. “We believe Main Streets Flats is well positioned to benefit from the growing job base in Bellevue and the surrounding markets.”
Just last month, Hines announced Main Street Place, a 6.75-acre, mixed-use development in downtown Bellevue. It will sit less than one block away from a future light rail station, scheduled to open in 2023, which will connect this site to downtown Seattle, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and Microsoft’s headquarters in Redmond giving residents immediate access to employers, transportation, amenities and top-rated schools.
