Urban Campus: PBD office tower will energize Bellevue’s central business district
When complete,The Artise will be a 25-story office tower in Bellevue’s central business district appealing to high tech businesses and professionals. DCI Engineers is the structural engineer of record for the project. The 1,040,000-sf tower will consist of a steel framed gravity and lateral structure with buckling restrained mega braces and steel moment frames. The lateral system stops at Level 1 and completely transfers lateral forces to the basement walls, which allows the entire basement level to be open, unobstructed space. This project is being peer reviewed for performance based design for resiliency and economy.
- The lateral system design saved the project team from excavating an entire below-grade floor.
- There will be 7,522-sf of ground floor retail space, a public plaza, and a great room to activate the streetscape.
- There will be three distinct building setbacks and five levels of below-grade parking (~900 stalls).
- Will be located near the new light rail transit station.
