30Bellevue wins VISION 2040 Award

New housing development helps formerly homeless

The 30Bellevue housing development has won a 2019 VISION 2040 Award from the Puget Sound Regional Council. The awards recognize innovative projects and programs that help ensure a sustainable future as the region grows.

"30Bellevue provides 63 green and affordable apartments homes ranging from studio to 3-bedrooms, more than half of which will directly serve formerly homeless households,” said Josh Brown, Executive Director of PSRC. "This helps meet a critical need on the eastside and is an excellent example of what we can accomplish when we work in partnership."

Imagine Housing led the partnership to develop 30Bellevue, working closely with St. Luke’s Lutheran Church, Walsh Construction, SMR Architects and many others. The property was designed to support families with amenities like open space, community rooms, and access to transportation. Many in the community donated furniture, school supplies, and other basics to help new residents. 

The award was presented at Bellevue City Council on September 16, 2019.
