BIZNOTE FOLLOWUP: Camp West progress in The Junction

(Photo sent by Toni – mural/signage by Andrew Miller)

Maybe you noticed the new coat of paint on the former West 5 building in The Junction (4539 California SW), which as reported here in June is being transformed into Camp West – and now includes the mural-style signage above. We’ve received a few inquiries about its progress. So we asked Patrick Haight, a member of the Camp West ownership team, how it’s going. He says the exterior “was painted to match our color scheme inside,” adding that kitchen equipment and coolers are in place – after a longer wait than they had expected after placing orders in late May/early June – while tables and booths are arriving soon. “The supply chain and available inventory has been challenging. However, we are just being patient in wanting the right equipment to meet our needs. An October opening is where our timeline stands, barring no more delays. We are optimistic and excited to get our Camp West Seattle up and running.” As noted in our June report, it’s a sibling establishment to Tacoma’s Camp Bar.

    Really nice to see. Hopefully the bridge opening will kick off a bit of a renaissance in terms of new business, leasing and commercial real estate.

    HTB- totally agree, as long as landlords don’t base rates on potential vs reality.  We are a full year or two away from a full recovery due to the pandemic and the bridge closure in West Seattle. Businesses are behind the curve on recovery over here.

    Hope they will be open late! Desperate need of more adult night life in the junction! Hopefully more music venues make their way over here too. I still miss Parliament!

Sorry, comment time is over.
