Hines Global REIT Acquires The Summit in Bellevue, WA

(HOUSTON) – Hines, the international real estate firm, announced today that Hines Global REIT, Inc. has acquired The Summit, a portfolio of two Class A office towers (Summit I and Summit II) located in Bellevue, Washington from Ivanhoe Cambridge.

The portfolio totals 524,130 square feet and also includes a 43,413-square-foot development site (Summit III) that is fully entitled for 330,409 square feet of additional office space.

The property is 94.7 percent leased to eleven tenants, including New York Life Insurance, Perkins Coie, Puget Sound Energy, and Sterling Savings Bank.

 Hines will manage The Summit on behalf of Hines Global REIT, Inc.

Sherri Schugart, President and CEO of Hines Global REIT, said, “We are attracted to this opportunity due to the project’s desirable location in the Bellevue submarket.

High-quality building materials, a beautifully landscaped outdoor plaza and an expansive, modern lobby make it one of the most attractive projects in the market.”

The existing towers (Summit I and II) are 11 and 13 stories, respectively, and were completed in 2002 and 2005. The fully-entitled development site (Summit III) could accommodate a 15-story, Class A office tower, and includes a completed seven-story subterranean parking garage.

On-site amenities include The Summit Room, a signature amenity that combines the functions of a lobby, building lounge and meeting area, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a conference center, Café Pogacha restaurant, and Bright Horizons childcare facility.

Ty Bennion, Senior Managing Director of Hines, said “Summit I and II are among Bellevue’s premier office developments.

We are excited to control one of the premier build-to-suit opportunities in the Northwest with the 330,000-square-foot Summit III tower, which we could deliver for occupancy in 24 months.”

Arthur Lloyd, executive president, global investments, Ivanhoé Cambridge, commented “With this successful transaction, we continue to rotate capital into Seattle’s CBD market where we will benefit from the ongoing growth of the Seattle economy and its highly diversified economic base.”
