Kemper Development Company this week announced Bank of America has signed a lease to occupy a 76,000-square-foot office space at 400 Lincoln Square in Bellevue.

With client-facing teams from Bank of America’s Merrill Lynch, Merrill Lynch Private Banking & Investment Group, and U.S. Trust lines of business planned to occupy three floors of the office tower, Bank of America said the new location will further help support the bank’s goal of better serving its clients.

“We are pleased to work with KDS to support the continued development of downtown Bellevue,” said Anthony DiBlasi, Bank of America’s Washington State president. “This relocation is very exciting for both our employees and clients. In addition to bringing our teams together, it allows us to better serve our clients by providing them with a central location to service all of their financial needs in one of Bellevue’s premiere new properties.”

Bank of America is scheduled to make its move into the new office tower during the second half of 2018.
