This week's cover story details the unfortunate timing of big-dreaming developers on the Eastside, specifically Schnitzer West, who launched an ultra-high-end luxury condo and retail development, The Bravern, just as Bellevue finally succumbed to the Great Recession.
But despite its struggles to sell condos and the departure of two high-profile restaurants after less than a year, The Bravern has managed to hang on. And today Schnitzer announced that it has signed a new tenant: Vovito Caffè & Gelato is set to open at the end of this month.
According to its website, Vovito is hiring for all positions at the cafe. Perhaps the scoop slinger can work out a deal with The Bravern where a down payment on a new condo is included in employees' compensation packages.
