Bridging the old and the new, Venn at Main in Bellevue is now open.
The mixed-use space features 25,600 square feet of retail space and 350 residential units, which now are all available.
The residential units include studios, one-bedroom units, one-bedroom units with a den, two-bedroom units, two-bedroom units with a den, town homes, and lofts. All of the homes have vinyl plank wood flooring, crushed quartz countertops, modern stainless steel appliances, and more.
“There’s really something for everyone,” said property manager Brenda Brady.
The building features five retail spaces, three of which are fully leased, one that is pending, and one that is still available. The building currently is home to West Elm and Robbins Brothers. There also are plans for a Swiftwater Cellars wine bar, operated by the same management as the Swiftwater Cellars at Suncadia Resort, to open sometime this spring.
Brady said one of the best things about the building is its central location, which provides easy access to dining, entertainment, grocery shopping, and other amenities.
Additionally, the building has many amenities of its own, including a giant rooftop space outfitted with lounges, seating, barbeque and grill stations, pet relief walking areas, and panoramic views. Pet lovers also can use the pet washing stations in the building’s garages.
The building also features a swimming pool, shuffle board table, 360-degree media room, and a state-of-the-art fitness center with yoga and spinning studios. There also is a coffee bar where residents can enjoy their favorite coffee, espresso, and tea beverages.
Security is a top priority, with a high-tech entry system and the option to have an app on your phone that allows you to view your front door. The parcel lockers are open 24/7 so residents can pick up their packages at any time. Additionally, a large transit screen displays upcoming bus routes and Uber rides.
As a gateway bridging old and new, the building blends the classic feel of Main Street with a modern and high-tech appearance.
Brady said one of the main goals is to focus on community and make Venn at Main residents feel at home. The building plays host to a variety of community and internal events, intended to foster resident activities and community relationships.
“We care about the people who are going to live here,” Brady said. “We have a great, personable staff who all really care about the residents, and building a sense of community is very important to us.”
One hundred of the residential spaces already have been rented out and Brady said she is excited to fill the remaining 250 and see what the community evolves into.
