Bellevue heats up: Vulcan under construction and Skanska announces ‘The Eight’

Vulcan Real Estate on Thursday said that it is under construction on its two big downtown Bellevue mixed-use office projects, but offered no details on the leasing of either.

Also new is Skanska providing updated images and announcing the name of its 25-story proposal, The Eight, which is at the corner of Northeast Eighth Street and 108th Avenue Northeast.
