Construction updates: Windermere, Phinney Center, Green Bean

October 18th, 2012 · Comments

Windermere Real Estate moved from its Oak Tree offices to 311 N. 85th St. in Greenwood in August. It will hold an open house for owners and employees of neighborhood businesses from 4-6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 1. (Note: This is for businesses only, not the general public.)

The Phinney Neighborhood Association’s ribbon cutting ceremony for its new community plaza and elevator is at 4 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 8, at the PNA, 6532 Phinney Ave. N.

The PNA bought the historic John B. Allen Elementary School from Seattle Public Schools in 2009, after renting the campus for nearly three decades. The PNA’s Capital Campaign is raising money to upgrade the two buildings and grounds, including adding an elevator to the Blue Building, and installing a new community plaza and entryway.

Here’s what construction looked like today.

Don’t forget that the Green Bean Coffeehouse has moved from 8533 Greenwood Ave. N. and into Sanctuary Church’s offices, at 8515 Greenwood Ave. N. The coffee shop is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Green Bean will move into the new building under construction between the old Green Bean and Razzi’s Pizzeria when it’s finished sometime in the spring.

Here’s the site under construction today.

And James sent us photos of the demolition of the Green Bean building (below).

The new building is part of Greenwood Shopping Center Inc.’s Piper Village development, which includes the Sedges Apartments in the background of this picture.

    The new Windermere building is attractive and their move into the neighborhood is a nice vote of confidence.
