The building that’s been home to Ballard Blossom for 35 years is slated to become a 7-story hotel.
Ballard Blossom, which first opened in Ballard in 1927, has been at their current location since 1984. The florists plan to reopen in a new location, owner Rachel Martin tells My Ballard. She says the buyers of the building (1766 NW Market St) will allow them to continue leasing the space for the next several months while they work on finalizing a new space.
The hotel plans include 120 rooms, with a ground floor hotel lobby and amenities. There’s one level of below-grade parking in the plans, with space for 30 cars and accessible from the alley.
We’ll update when we know more about Ballard Blossom’s plans, and the timeline for the new hotel.
