Trulia Center (formerly 110 Atrium) had been an under-performing class “B” property for the last 20 years. As the Bellevue Central Business District grew, and technology companies moved back to the central core, the owner of the building saw this property as a great opportunity to reposition it in the market. To successfully reposition Trulia Center, we upgraded all of the building’s lobby and common area finishes, installed custom light fixtures, and new, contemporary furniture. The building’s atrium received the largest overhaul with the removal and simplification of dated walkways, the installation of several semi-private “pods” for tenant collaboration, and the addition of a central staircase.
The building moved from 50% vacant, with below-market rental rates, to nearly full with top-end rental rates. Trulia Center was almost completely leased before the renovation was complete.
