GIX’s home is a new 100,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility in Bellevue’s growing Spring District. As part of a 36-acre mixed-use development built around planned light rail, the GIX building, named in honor of former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, is just 10 miles from the UW campus and offers proximity to multiple technology corridors. Specifically designed for the program, the building features design studios, an incubation space, electronics prototyping labs, presentation spaces and one of the largest and most comprehensively equipped makerspaces in the region.
Special thanks to Wright Runstad & Company, the developer and owner of the Steve Balmer building, and the incredible team of professionals who delivered the project in record time: architect NBBJ, general contractor Lease Crutcher Lewis, along with Skanska and Bora Architects who partnered to finish out the interior improvements of the building.
