Update: Scandinavian Specialties owner Bjørn Ruud said he hasn’t been informed of any future development planned for the property.
“As is perhaps typical with commercial landlord/tenant relationships, I have been kept almost completely in the dark,” Ruud tells My Ballard. However, he said his lease includes a 12-month termination clause, so the store will stay put for the next year at least.
Original: The property where Scandinavian Specialties operates has just been sold for $2.9 million.
According to a report from theSeattle Daily Journal of Commerce, the potential development site including 6701-6719 15th Ave NW has just been bought by 67th and 15th Ave LLC, associated with LDG Architects.
The site also includes the now-closed Specialty Auto Care shop.
We’ve reached out to Scandinavian Specialties, and will update with any news regarding their future plans.
