Swedish Automotive update: New tenant for ‘old’ building

Just checked on construction progress of the new Swedish Automotive (WSB sponsor) HQ at 35th/Kenyon (above), while inquiring about the future of Swedish Automotive’s current building at 35th/Webster (map). Swedish proprietor Dave Winters tells WSB it just so happens he signed a lease this morning with a new tenant for the “old” building – but isn’t ready to identify them just yet. Meantime, if all continues to go well, September 2nd is the target completion date for the new building – that’s faster than predicted when we reported on the project as construction got under way in early March.

    Is it safe to assume any new tenant in the old building will be automotive-related? Maybe we can get a hint or a riddle or something?

    Yeah, what Sage said.

    Where I’m from, corner of Angelescrest and Foothill Blvd.–La Canada, the auto repair shop was turned into a BOOKSTORE!

    Nice to see a business grow and expand. Best of luck to Swedish. We will miss you in our little neck of the hood! Hope the “new tenant” is worthwhile.

    That space would be perfect for a new Whole Foods!
