We’ve got some new news on the 4111 Stone Way development under way. Patrick writes:
I think I mentioned to you a while back that my firm Lake Union Partners is re-developing a site at 4111 Stone Way into a 4-story apartment building with commercial space at street level. Image is attached.
In case you are interested in posting this on your blog, I wanted to let you know that we signed an agreement with Empire Espresso of Columbia City to take the commercial space at street level. Super community oriented shop that serves Kuma Coffee and really amazing waffles. I think they are well aligned with Wallingford culture and will be a good fit.
I believe they are going to serve beer and wine as well at the Wallingford location, plus they are major soccer enthusiasts. You might encourage people to go check out their shop in Columbia City to get a sense of what is coming to Wallingford next year in probably January or February of 2013. Tino Ganacias and Ian Peters are the owner / operators and will do a great job in Wallingford.
Here is the Empire Espresso Blog
A quick peruse of their blog shows a very modern, comfortable style with some very unusual waffles.
