Bartell Drugs to open new store in Ballard Commons development

Earlier today, Bartell Drugs announced plans for their new store set to open in 2016 in the Ballard Commons development at 5605 22nd Ave NW. The announcement confirms that the two Bartell Drugs locations in Ballard (at 1500 NW Market St and at 5605 22nd Ave NW) are here to stay.

The new store will be part of the mixed-use development set to be built on the site currently occupied by Bartell Drugs.

The new 14,000-square-foot Bartell’s location is set to be the major retail store in the development and will include underground parking for customers.

“This is another milestone in our longtime commitment to Ballard. During construction of the new store, we look forward to serving customers at our Market Street location,” said George D. Bartell, chairman and CEO.

The 22nd Ave NW Bartell Drugs location is set to close in January 2015 for the construction of the Ballard Commons development. During construction, Bartell’s will continue to serve the community at their Market St location.

Ballard Commons is a development by Seattle-based Henbart, LLC, and is set to be a mixed-use structure. The development will feature two contemporary, companion buildings housing 80 apartments, 4 townhomes and approximately 21,000 sf. of loft style office space and 21,000 sf. of retail along 22nd with Bartell Drugs as the anchor tenant.
