Photos of downtown Bellevue, Washington skyscrapers

I just finished putting a bunch of pictures of Bellevue, Washington on Towrs.com (shameless plug), and thought i'd post some here for everyone to see.

For those of you who haven't heard of Bellevue (and I hadn't until about six months ago), geographically, it's a suburb of Seattle; though I've met several older people in Seattle who don't realize that, and think Bellevue is just another neighborhood of the city. I don't know if that feeling is widespread, or not.

It's very clean. Very quiet. The population is 30% foreign-born (Indian, Pakistani, Japanese mostly). The big companies are Microsoft, Eddie Bauer, CoinStar, Paccar.

It's a tech hub, as well. It's the headquarters of Expedia, Infospace, Drugstore.com, T-Mobile USA, HTC's American operations, and a bunch of video game companies including Valve.

The architecture is half way between traditional glass-and-steel, and the emerging Pacific Northwest school.
