In 2012, we announced that Trader Joe’s was planning to move into the new building in 2014, and the opening is coming soon. A sign is up, a liquor license application has been posted, and the building management has confirmed an August opening (barring any hiccups).
- Trader Joes – spot on the plaza with the awning and sign
- Paper Source – next to Trader Joes, to the south
- Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy – corner of Queen Anne Ave N and Howe St
- TBD – restaurant space on the plaza is not leased yet
Per the building manager, a bank has leased the ground floor of the old Elfreida Apartments spot (the brick replication on the northwest corner). Our reader tips tell us it’s Union Bank – and they’re usually pretty spot-on.
