Of the 539 homes that make up the swanky Bellevue Towers Condominiums, 414 have been sold since the building was completed in 2009 — and 156 of those were snapped up this year.
Gary Rubens, President-CEO of Allied Trade Group (atgstores.com), a Kirkland company that sells lighting fixtures and other products, and his wife Jennifer were one of the first to move into a 3,400-square-foot penthouse that has two bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths and an 800-square-foot terrace where they like to spend their time entertaining and taking in the view.
“When we sit on the deck we just feel totally blessed to have such an amazing place that we can share with friends and family. Having a place like this and not sharing it would not be as much fun,” Gary Rubens said. “The view is amazing and we are always in awe that we can see so far on a clear day.”
