The tower is shaped by destination amenities on transfer floors, where terraces and balconies offer spill-out space and views to the south, culminating in a top-floor terrace behind iconic spires which reach to the sky. On both sides, the colorful curtainwall is inspired by cascading rainfall. Drawing upon the agricultural history of Bellevue, the pavilion roof recalls angular crop outlines, which merge with gestures in the street-level landscape and Grand Connection hill-climb. With an engaging, walkable streetfront, a richly lit public open space, and a diverse retail experience, 555 108th brings to Bellevue an urban asset which will anchor and inspire future developments along the Grand Connection.
