$2 million pledged to Tateuchi Center campaign

Another $2 million has been pledged to build a state-of-the-art performing arts center in Bellevue.

Microsoft and Kemper Development Company announced the pledge today to the Tateuchi Center Campaign. The center, scheduled to open in 2014, will feature a 2,000-seat concert hall and 250-seat cabaret.

Microsoft already has given $1.1 million to the campaign.

In 2006, the Campaign For PACE was created — with a $160 million fund-raising goal — to build a performing arts center on the Eastside. In 2010, the Tateuchi Foundation gave a $25 million grant to the proposed arts center which then became the Tateuchi Center, and then the Tateuchi Center Campaign.

The planned center will be located in downtown Bellevue at Northeast 10th Street and 106th Avenue Northeast.
