BIZNOTES: Supreme; Starbucks; Alki Urban Market

Three biznotes to share:

SUPREME PROGRESS: Thanks to the texter who let us know that signage starting to appear on the exterior of the future Supreme, pizza, pinball, and more from Ma’Ono and New Luck Toy chef/co-proprietor Mark Fuller. We stopped by and got a peek as remodeling continues:

This space is the former Pellegrini Market (4521 California SW).

STARBUCKS WEST SEATTLE DRIVE-THRU REMODELING: Back in March, we reported that online records showed remodeling work was on the way for the drive-thru Starbucks at Fauntleroy/Avalon/35th in West Seattle. The company wouldn’t comment. But now a sign’s up alerting customers that the work is starting.

Thanks to Anna for the photo.

ALKI URBAN MARKET: A few months back, a reader told us the convenience store at 2820 Alki SW, open almost 10 years, was going to close at summer’s end. We tried but couldn’t get the owner to confirm. Now, at summer’s end, it apparently has indeed shut down – after reader tips, we went over to look, and while there’s no sign on the door, the store is dark and the shelves are empty. No indication in public records of what’s happening in the space next.

    Any idea what’s happening at 7356 35th Ave SW? Looks like they are restoring to the brick and glass facade.

      We stopped by recently. Workers say it’s a massage business. We haven’t yet reached the owners to ask for further details.

    Guessing there’s no info or you would have published it already but do you know if there is any update on The Homstead renovation/restoration?

  • Stuart September 2, 2017 (6:57 pm)

    Any updates from THE HYDRANT- the dog-friendly bar adjacent to. NEXT TO NATURE?

      Considering how long it’s been since the announcement, and how little activity EVER takes place inside that storefront, I’d say you’ll be much better served to find a dog-friendly bar already in operation.
      My guess is an investor came to their senses and backed out.

    Joining the update crowd… anyone know what happened at the Holden and 16th 7-11 that has windows boarded up?

  • RayWest September 3, 2017 (7:12 am)

    Yea another pizza place?  Sorry, but I’m not at all enthused.

    What’s going on at the vacant space in the same building as Game Stop next to the tanning salon at Westwood Village? Looks like some construction work there.

    • WSB September 3, 2017 (5:11 pm)

      ATI Physical Therapy, according to the center’s most recent site map and the latest check of permits.

    I’ve been told that the french restaurant Maree is going to expand into the Urban Market space.

  • Sol September 3, 2017 (5:17 pm)

    I’m curious as to what business plans on moving into the formerly long time vacant Uncle Spankys on California Ave. I think a hipster steam punk themed bar keeping the original business name could be a great concept in the likes of much of these new places.

    • WSB September 3, 2017 (6:16 pm)

      That was in our development update the other day, briefly. Live-works….

  • Kim September 3, 2017 (11:03 pm)

    Please put a Cone and Steiner market in the old Alki Urban Market spot!

    With Amazon buying Whole Foods, is there any update on the Whittaker space that Whole Foods was going to occupy before pulling out?

    • WSB September 5, 2017 (2:47 pm)

      This came up in other comment threads. I have asked Whole Foods multiple times, before and after the deal closed … no reply so far. The space is still split on the building’s leasing map.

Sorry, comment time is over.
