Amazon announced plans Wednesday to increase the company’s presence in Bellevue. City officials offered the following comments:
“We’re excited by today’s announcement that Amazon plans to expand its presence in Bellevue. As a community we’ve worked hard to anticipate this type of positive growth downtown, and Amazon is a natural fit. It’s also critical that these types of jobs stay in the region. Bellevue values our business community and we look forward to working with the company as their transition progresses. Welcome home, Amazon!”
- Mayor John Chelminiak
“Bellevue has evolved over the years into a desirable place where companies, from startup to major industry leaders such as Amazon, want to be. Our staff approaches the business community as important partners and we’re eager to work with Amazon and its employees to make its announced expansion to the Eastside a success.”
- City Manager Brad Miyake
