130th Station to Play Significant Role in Bel-Red Corridor Redevelopment
September 2014
 
 
 
A recent open house hosted by Sound Transit underscored the significant public interest in the agency’s 130th Station in Bellevue. The first of 10 stations to be designed as part of the East Link Light Rail expansion between downtown Seattle and Redmond, 130th Station will serve as a catalyst for the redevelopment of a former industrial area in the Bel-Red corridor.
Tiscareno Associates, working with LMN Architects, is the lead architect for the station and H-J-H Final Design Partners is the prime consultant. The station is part of a long-range plan by the City of Bellevue to develop a sustainable, transit-oriented, mixed-used, high-density neighborhood that will generate an estimated 10,000 new jobs and provide up to 5,000 housing units. As part of the plan, 130th will become a major retail street, and the station will be a critical component of its success.
A mix of glass, concrete, and steel materials will be used in combination to create a modern look that reflects both the natural Goff Creek setting and the area’s historical industrial roots. One of the challenges of the station design is to incorporate a temporary, 300-stall park and ride that will help attract train riders during the early development phase.
The open house marks a major milestone in the development of Sound Transit’s 130th Station. With significant public input evaluated and 90 percent of the design now complete, the project moves into its final design phase that will be completed in the spring of 2015. Construction is expected to begin on the segment toward the end of 2015.
