The new downtown Bellevue post office won’t be in downtown Bellevue.
Replacement of the existing tired and outdated Bellevue post office is long overdue. While several potential downtown locations were mentioned in recent years, the site selected for the new “downtown” Bellevue post office will be east of I-405. Interior renovation is nearly complete on an existing building located at the southwest corner of Bel-Red Road and 124th Avenue NE. Though a bit of an eyesore, I’m definitely going to miss the convenience of having a post office within the central business district.
