    Residents of the Bellevue WA apartments know that the city is revered for its focus on bringing citizens many of the finer things in life. You can see it in the architecture, you can see it in the parks, and you can even see it in amazing shopping destinations like The Bellevue Collection:

    “The Bellevue Collection, the Northwest's premier shopping and dining district, has over 200 shops, 50 restaurants and entertainment venues, and 12,000 free parking spaces, all connected by sky bridges.”

    It’s quite the setup, and you might be wondering what you’ll find when you visit, or what this grand assemblage of shopping has to offer. We’re here to bring you information on both, as we delve into the details on what The Bellevue Collection is all about.

    More About The Bellevue Collection

    The Bellevue Collection is the brainchild of the Kemper Development Company. Initially founded over seventy years ago by Kemper Freeman Sr., it has gone through much transformation over the years. Now under the watchful eye of Freeman’s son, Kemper Freeman Jr., it has grown into one of the crown jewels of Bellevue’s commercial scene:

    “Intimately linked to the growth of Bellevue itself, The Bellevue Collection has become an internationally renowned hub of life and entertainment, work and leisure, relaxation and pleasure, all at the epicenter of one of the country’s most sophisticated, fastest-growing markets.”

    The Bellevue Collection, if you weren’t aware, is actually an amalgamation of three Kemper Freeman-owned properties: Bellevue Square, Bellevue Place, and Lincoln Square. That skybridge we mentioned is what links Lincoln Square to Bellevue Square, where you’ll find even more of note, in the way of dining, shopping, and the rather luxurious hotel housed at the complex.

    With over 1,300,000 square feet of retail space spread over three floors, the amount of variety at the Bellevue Collection is staggering. You’ll find, among other offerings, bars, bakeries, restaurants, apparel stores, and much more in this legendary mall, with specific brands including Macys, Abercrombie & Fitch, Earls, and many others.

    As for getting to The Bellevue Collection, you’ll find it right in the heart of Bellevue, just north of Downtown Park and just a short walk from the Bellevue Arts Museum. This is truly a beacon for the town, so when you have the chance, be sure to head on over and see what some of those stores have on offer — you may just find something that’s right up your alley.
