School of Rock looking for another new location

After four months of working with the Department of Planning and Development, it turns out that School of Rock cannot move into the Crown Hill space they leased back in April.

“Lots of people have been asking when we’re moving to Crown Hill so thought we’d share some of the challenges with the move,” Kristoffer Kierulff, general manager emailed us.

We signed the lease for the space on 85th and 11th around April. For the past 4 months we have been working the DPD to obtain the appropriate permits to do our construction on the space. It’s been a tedious process to say the least, but ultimately we have discovered that the zoning of the building (Residential/Commercial) does not allow for a “School/Institution” to be in that particular building without a much longer review and permitting process. A process which we have found to be too costly and risky. We are committed to finding a new home in the Greenwood/Phinney/Ballard neighborhoods, and will continue to search for an ideal locale. If any of your readers know of any good homes for us, we’re all ears!

Stay tuned and we’ll let you know about future developments. Thanks for your support.
