BELLEVUE— Although the specific tenant was not announced, Kemper Freeman said Monday that "a unique kind of urban grocery store" will move into a section of the 200,000-sqaure-foot space J.C. Penney vacated last year in Bellevue Square. They're currently negotiating two two grocers, one of which may be Whole Foods. [PSBJ]
