Almost all retail locations at The Towne now leased for 2014 openings

Local News, Queen Anne Business


Since construction began, the big question regarding “The Towne” mixed-use building has been what businesses will fill the spot on the site of the old Met Market and Elfrieda Apartments.

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).

We now have word on what else will be located on the retail level of the new complex:

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.
