Development application for medical buildings at 24th St NE (Bel-Red Medical Building)

Hello Sherwood Forest Neighbors.

Please be aware there is a permit application to build a 3-story building with underground parking space on 24th St NE, (almost at the corner of 156th Ave NE) where the Bel-Red medical offices stand right now.

There is a public hearing on 3/31 at 6:00 PM regarding this application. You can join or make public comments for this application here:

Public Meeting: March 31, 2021, 6 PM;

Join Zoom Meeting: https://cityofbellevue.zoom.us/j/91890243636 Password: 121708

Call or email: Planner: Leah Chulsky, 425-452-6834

Planner Email: lchulsky@bellevuewa.gov

The application states the developer will replace 2 one story building to one 3-story building with an underground parking for an additional 57 car. The most interesting aspect of this application is that they intent to build a church on the first floor which includes offices, class rooms and etc. I believe the most concerning aspect of the application is that church statement, since there is no warranty this will always be a church or ever be a church. So that is something to keep in mind when thinking about this application.

Details for the application can be found here: https://bellevuewa.gov/sites/default/files/media/pdf_document/2021/21-104361-LD.pdf

BTC update [ June 2019]

Hello Sherwood Forest,

Hopefully most of you are already aware but BTC withdraw it development application last month. I had forgotten to provide an update on our site.

The owners of the Bellevue Technology Center withdrew the application last minute before City Council could make a final recommendation. We want to thank you for all your engagement and participation. This outcome was only possible because of the strong response from the community. City leaders heard your voice, loud and clear so, THANK YOU for your support.

While we are very happy with the current outcome, we are hoping you remain involved and continue to pay attention to future communications on this important topic. BTC’s lawyers are already exploring other ways to get what they want, so chances are we will have to fight them again in the future.

Have a great summer and thanks again!
