As part of Bellevue’s burgeoning skyline, The Mirador stands apart from the surrounding downtown district in several key ways. From ground floor up, the project possesses a unique façade for an otherwise standard building envelope that utilizes texture, material and form to highlight it as a distinctive destination. An established pedestrian zone set back from the street pulls in passersby, highlights the project’s retail base and activates the street in ways not currently taken advantage of in Bellevue’s downtown thoroughfares. The Mirador’s top floors employ duplex apartments that allowed the design team to offset the building’s profile and establish generous balconies.
