Scheduled to launch in spring 2012, this massive 25,500 square foot building on the Fremont/Wallingford border of 35th and Stone Way will house a mix of office space, restaurants, and retail, all the while retaining the 7,000 square foot Inner Space Skate Park underneath.
In the past two years, the three precociously ambitious partners of evo Properties have wrangled renowned chefs such as Ethan Stowell, Renee Erickson, Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi to set up shop in two of their completed projects: Ballard’s Kolstrand Building and Fremont’s Revel/Quoin. Like a My Little Pony on crack, I am chomping at the bit to see which top-notch restaurants end up in the Collective.
evo Properties has a knack for transforming obsolete buildings and dead spaces located in Seattle’s hip neighborhoods.
I would love to see one of Ethan Stowell’s upcoming casual restaurants open its doors in the Fremont Collective, preferably the popular chef’s fish and chips-themed eatery in the works. On a retail front, I have my fingers crossed for a cool sneaker shop that will match my favorite kicks shop in San Francisco – Shoe Biz.
What is on your wish list for the Collective’s retail and restaurant space?
