SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Wright Runstad & Company, developer of the 36-acre Spring District in Bellevue, today announced that AMLI Residential Properties (“AMLI”) purchased Parcel 17, nearly 1.5-acres of land for residential development. The sale extends Wright Runstad & Company and Shorenstein Properties’ strategy to work with leading multifamily developers to construct the residential property in The Spring District.
“This is a strong endorsement of The Spring District as Bellevue’s emerging walkable neighborhood,” said Greg Johnson, Wright Runstad & Company President. “AMLI Residential is a national leader in luxury apartment construction and sustainable development.”
AMLI purchased 1.47 acres to develop a single residential building with approximately 220 units. The property is located in the southwest corner of The Spring District, just north of Security Properties’ first development phase, encompassing just over 300 units.
“The Spring District is the most exciting new development on the east side,” said Scott Koppelman, Senior Vice President at AMLI. “The progressive and environmentally conscious design matches our philosophy for building green and creating greater value for the larger community.”
AMLI is working with GGLO Architects and Rafn Construction to design and develop the site. Construction is expected to start in early 2017 with completion by early 2019.
