Six-story hotel could replace Marie Callender's

December 11th, 2012 by master

When Marie Callender’s abruptly closed its doors this summer, there was plenty of pondering about the possible future for the space at 9538 First Ave N.E.

With an awkward location right on the border of Maple Leaf and Northgate, Marie Callender’s likely took advantage of its view of Interstate 5 by drawing in passers-by looking for a familiar name. The next potential owners of the space may have the same idea in mind.

According to The Seattle Times, a six-story, 174-room hotel could be the next big thing on the Maple Leaf-Northgate horizon. Preliminary paperwork has been filed by Seattle developer Gramor Development Washington to build the hotel in the same location as the former chain restaurant.

The Times adds that the city’s Northeast Design Review Board is set to consider the project Jan. 28.

What's happening with the Italian Spaghetti House?

September 15th, 2011 by Mike

We must have heard now from a half-dozen or more folks who all have a question similar to Susan’s:

“”Italian Spaghetti House on Lake City Way has a big fence around it. Anyone know what is up?”

We’ve looked around, and still don’t know the answer. But we’re betting one of our readers does.

The Italian Spaghetti House & Pizzeria closed earlier this year after 55 years in the same location, 9824 Lake City Way N.E. The owner told The Seattle Times she hoped to reopen, but it’s never happened.

There’s no permit activity for the address visible on the city’s website, and the property doesn’t appear to be actively for sale or lease.

Who can help figure this out?
