Lincoln Square is a mixed-use urban development in Bellevue, Washington, owned by prominent local developer Kemper Freeman.[2] Lincoln Square, located along Bellevue Way between NE 6th and NE 8th streets, consists of two skyscrapers with retail and restaurant space, and a movie theater; and a 148-room residential tower and 337-room luxury hotel (One Lincoln Tower); and underground parking. The development constitutes part of "The Bellevue Collection", which consists of Freeman's properties in downtown Bellevue alongside Bellevue Place and Bellevue Square.[2] The office tower is leased to Eddie Bauer's corporate headquarters and Microsoft; the hotel is occupied by Westin Hotels & Resorts.

The first phase was completed in November 2005,[3][4] after Freeman acquired a majority stake in the project in 2003.[5] A $1.2 billion expansion, consisting of two mixed-use towers, was announced in 2013 and began construction in 2014;[6][7] the project is scheduled to be completed in 2017 alongside an expansion of the Bellevue Square mall.[8]
