Amazon closes $195M purchase of Bellevue Corporate Plaza

To get from the birthplace of Amazon.com to what likely will be center of the company's expanding Eastside outpost, drive south down 108th Avenue Northeast for about a mile and a half to Bellevue Corporate Plaza. Amazon on Wednesday bought the 10-story building, paying Equity Commonwealth $195 million for the 3.5-acre property at 600 108th Ave. NE, public records show. It was unclear what the company plans to do with the property, though an Amazon spokesperson said the company opened its first leased building in Bellevue in 2017 and likes it.
