BIZNOTE: Junction salon owner moving, downsizing

After more than 20 years in The Junction, The Forsythe Studio is closing.

Sort of.

Proprietor Jessica Forsythe explains that while she’s closing the salon at 4456 California SW at month’s end, she’s not going out of business – she’s moving and “downsizing.” She and a partner will open Modern Roots in The Admiral District (the former Via space at 4217 SW College) on March 3rd.

Her Forsythe Studio stylists are moving on to new gigs, too, she says, and if you need to find someone, just call Jessica and she’ll point you to the right place(s). She says she’s keeping the Forsythe Studio’s longtime phone number, 206-935-1865.

      Could be.  I think there’s condo units above the KW location and Shadowland probably has time on their lease, but it’s certainly interesting when two businesses next door to each other relocate by the end of the same month.  I also worry a bit about businesses relocating out of the junction and potentially no longer being a part of the funding for the junction parking lot collective.

    Congratulations to Ms. Forsythe on the big decision and new home. Welcome to Admiral! (It is also nice that folks can find their stylist.)

    My mom used to have her shop in that same location years ago.  Congrats!

    Keller Williams building is owned by the same family that owns buildings to the north,  Shadowland/Neilson  building owned by Shadowland and Dumplings of Fury business owners.  I’d guess that Shadowland might want to expand. And that would be only a guess.
