I’ve been so excited about Green Lake Village for so long – living close to the site for years, I was just waiting for construction to start and the unsightly great hole to go away. I walk by it at least once per week, usually walking my dog to the lake on the weekend or to my old standby Forza Coffee.
The building exterior is now complete, and I’m sure the home interiors are pretty close to it as the new leasing office soft opens on May 17th. But I got really excited last weekend when I walked by and saw signs up for new businesses already moving into the retail spaces.
We all know the building is anchored by a new PCC – that one is slated to open on my birthday, June 4th, and I was happy to see a liquor license sign in their window last time I passed by. But then on the south side of the building, we’re getting a few new fitness options – Modo Yoga and Pure Barre. Modo officially opened on May 1st, so you can already check them out.
When you’re done burning calories, you can happily put them back on at the west side of the building – in the new location of Lucia Italian Kitchen, who currently operate a restaurant out of Kirkland and will open the Green Lake spot in July. It’ll help fill a gap in that neighborhood, I feel, for Italian cuisine and good wine.
There’s a Homestreet Bank opening within the building, and a Kinetic Sports Rehab is also opening by summer. It looks like there will still be one or two spaces for businesses, so I can’t wait to see how they round this out!
