Hines Summit III Design Released

(BELLEVUE, WASHINGTON) – Hines, the international real estate firm, announced today that permits for the development site, Summit III, have been approved by the City of Bellevue representing a major step forward for the project. When Hines Global REIT, Inc. (“Hines Global REIT”), a public company sponsored by Hines, acquired The Summit in 2015, it consisted of the fully entitled development site which can accommodate a 17-story Class A tower and includes a completed seven-story subterranean parking garage.

Hines tasked the Summit III design team consisting of LMN, Magnusson Klemencic Associates, ME Engineers, Berger Partnership, Pace Engineering Services and Hines Conceptual Construction Group, to optimize a new design for high-density technology tenants.

The approximately 370,000-square-foot, 17-story building will be built on top of the existing parking garage. Summit III will showcase full-height 9’10’’ windows, achieving 50 percent more exterior glazing than under the Washington State prescriptive energy code, maximizing excellent natural light and magnificent mountain views. Simultaneously, the design exceeds Washington State Energy Code performance by 15 percent, utilizes traditional, electric, VAV boxes for cost-effective tenant build-out, increases the building by two floors, increases floor loading for amenity areas, increases elevator capacity by adding three elevators and increases restroom fixtures by one over the code.

Summit III will be the third building in The Summit portfolio. 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 child care facility.

Ty Bennion, senior managing director at Hines, said, “We are thrilled the City of Bellevue has approved the permits. The asset will be the only floor-to-ceiling glass building at 9’10” tall, and we believe this property will set a new standard for quality in the market. We are excited about now focusing our attentions on leasing.”

Sherri Schugart, president and CEO of Hines Global REIT, said, “This is a prime example of the Hines difference at work—marrying top-down macroeconomic factors with local-market development expertise. We believe the build out of this development will not only enhance the Bellevue skyline, but also position Summit III as a high-quality asset that should generate attractive investment returns for our shareholders.”
