Ground is ceremonially broken on the first phase of a new development in Bellevue.
The Frontier District, in Old Towne Bellevue, will feature a luxury apartment building, retail space, revitalized walkways, landscaping, and redeveloped front facades for businesses on Mission Avenue.
City leaders say the development will help make the downtown Bellevue area west of the Bellevue Missouri River Bridge more competitive with other developments built in recent years.
The groundbreaking ceremonies were on the site of the what was once the Bellevue City Hall.
