On the Boards: Metropolitan Market, Crown Hill Village
Cushing Terrell is partnering with longtime Seattle client, Metropolitan Market to renovate what will be a new location for the local grocery chain in the rapidly transforming Crown Hill neighborhood of North Seattle. As of 2015, and as part of the 2035 Seattle plan, Crown Hill is a proposed “urban village” with zoning upgrades for multi-family use and better access to transit.
Metropolitan Market has been “Bringing Great Food to the City Since 1971” with store locations across the Puget Sound region. Their new Crown Hill Urban Village location is designed to sit at the intersection of world grocery market and hospitality for the ultimate guest experience that caters to food lovers with a compelling social club-like atmosphere.
Formerly home to a Value Village, and a QFC before that, the 38,200 sq. ft., 30+ year-old building will undergo significant improvements to align with Metropolitan Market’s recognizable brand identity and elevated food and flavor-forward experience. The vision for the design is a modern, warm, and friendly aesthetic.
The scope of work includes significant renovations to the south and west facades, and a full interior build-out including the addition of partition walls, interior finishes, new fixtures, and equipment installation, plus associated mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and refrigeration work.
