Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management Closes on Joint Venture Development Project in Downtown Bellevue

Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (DeAWM) announced today that its real estate investment business (formerly RREEF Real Estate) has closed on Alley 111, a development project in Bellevue, Washington, to construct and lease a 12-story multi-family tower. The investment, sourced on behalf of an institutional investor, was acquired in a joint venture with Skanska USA Commercial Development. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"We are delighted to be teaming up with Skanska on Alley 111,” said Todd Henderson, Head of Real Estate, Americas for Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management. “We believe our partnership in the dynamic Bellevue market will help us deliver the risk-adjusted returns we seek to provide for our client base. We are looking forward to combining our development and asset management experience to deliver an exciting, well-designed project for the Bellevue community.”

Located West of I-405, between 110th and 112th Avenues, Alley 111 will respond to the demands of the region’s “Millennials” – young, international, highly-educated professionals – drawn to Bellevue by the steady influx of technology companies including Microsoft and Expedia, and video gaming firms like Bungie. Alley 111 will combine 260 modern residences with distinctive ground floor retail to infuse urban life on the Eastside. It will also connect to a growing pedestrian entertainment corridor with access to the Transit Center, business towers, The Bravern and the Bellevue Collection.

Skanska USA Building will be the general contractor, breaking ground in mid-October, with residential units available for prelease in early 2015.
