There are already plenty of juice shops in Seattle—Starbucks is making bottled juices and makes them available to order for only a few selected stores, Kari Brunson takes care of the colorful Juicebox on Capitol Hill, and Anar is specialized in gemstone-hued juice. They are located inside the Amazon Doppler building.
New York City’s Juice Press has received support from Russell Wilson, the Seahawks quarterback . Wilson absolutely loves organic juices and he publicity stated a few days ago that he’ll get involved with this juice company that comes from the East Coast. Their first flagship shop will be established in Seattle in the coming months, probably early next year. It is their first store on the West Coast.
Wilson is partnering with Marcus Antebi, the founder of Juice Press, to expand their current offering of plant juices like ginger tumeric and green vegetable blends to Seattle and the rest of the West Coast. Other offerings include almond milk and coconut water–based smoothies, acai bowls, supplements, grab-and-go salads, and more. About this new venture, Antebi stated that he never thought that his company would become so big when he started it 6 years. Partnering with such sport icons like Russell Wilson and of course, his current business partners is something incredible for him.
Last summer, we already heard that Russell Wilson, the famous Seattle quarterback champion, was planning to open a Juice Press store (Juice Press is a juicery based in NYC) to Seattle as a foothold for their expansion on the West Coast. They looked at many different cities and finally picked our city.
Wilson, who will get some help from Juice Press’s Michael Karsch and Marcus Antebi, will open their first Seattle store in University Village. Actually, the organic juice shop will open in Evolution Fresh space at 2620 NE University Village Street.
This upcoming fall, this place will once again offer fresh juice. Juice Press’s offering of plant-based drinks is expanding and you will be able to enjoy ginger turmeric and green vegetable mixes. You will be delighted to have some almond milk and smoothies with coconut water, acai bowls, supplements, healthy salads to eat on the go, delicious hot soups, and a wide range of snacks to recharge your batteries whether you shop or play football.
(But if you don’t live close-by, you can find Juicebox by Kari Brunson on Capitol Hill, try also Anar in the Denny Regrade. These are both nice places for fresh juices full of colors)
SEATTLE - The Mayor of Seattle, Ed Murray, has picked the prestigious investor group Oak View Group to revamp the more than fifty-years old KeyArena.
Since the current mayor is not seeking to be re-elected, the next mayor will have to supervize the KeyArena renovation project that is worth more than half a billion dollars.
Jessyn Farrell, who is a candidate in the next election, will take a close look at the transportation issue.
Oak View Group CEO say that they will deal with the area and transportation problems.
Candidate Mike McGinn is the former mayor who backed the SoDo option. He thinks that this option should be kept alive.
What is their proposal in Seattle?
OVG's proposal offers an ambitious overhaul and the money will come from various income streams.
The plan is called “New Arena at Seattle Center.” The whole facility will be rebuilt except for the roof.
Was it the only proposal?
Another bid came from Seattle Partners but they withdrew their proposal. The city was heavily criticised for the way it handled proposals which prompted this offer to be withdrawn.
Is a new Seattle sports team in the works ?
Seattle has historically been a basketball town but the NHL has also shown interest.
The NHL is still waiting to see how and when the project will start since there have been many roadblocks since the beginning of the project.
The proposal says the arena should be completed by 2020, in time for the new NBA season.
What is the current status of SODO arena plans?
Chris Hansen, another investor, is still waiting for an opportunity to create a new arena financed by private funds near Safeco Field and close to the city's maritime businesses even though they don’t want to see another sports venue anywhere near them.
The SoDo has been voted down but has not been buried yet.
What are the implications for traffic?
Alternate traffic solutions are being explored such as shuttles, rideshares, and cycling. A light rail station will also open nearby meaning that car access will decrease overtime.
It took nearly two years and thousands of man hours, both in the construction and planning, but at last Burien Toyota has moved into it's shiny new Showroom. It is indeed an impressive addition to the Burien landscape, and certainly overshadows it's counterpart across the street. The Honda dealer, which is owned by another dealer group chose to do a remodel of it's existing building rather than a complete teardown that the Anderson Family owned Toyota franchise just completed. I went on a tour of the new facility and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. It is big and spacious, without being overwhelming. Plenty of high-tech features, and lot's of flatscreen tv's elegant tile floors, and several new rooms, which will help families feel at ease, while they make what is certainly one of there most important purchases. Speaking of families, they have added, a self contained kids room, to keep the little ones occupied while transactions are being done. Also a quiet room, which I am sure can double as a prayer room, for those who need a little extra guidance while visiting. Burien Toyota has always been very inclusive environment, so it's nice to see this added touch to continue and ad to this trend and atmosphere. The service drive and parts department are now all attached to the main showroom, for more convenance and efficiency. This state-of-the-art facility should only improve customer experience, and satisfaction.
Customers aren't the only beneficiaries of the digs. there has been many improvements for employees as well. The new break room is spacious and and fitted with plenty of seating and course a large flatscreen TV. They have also added more computers and IPads in the BDC ( business Development Center. Which will insure continued excellent customer relations and followup. The new meeting room, is again larger, and equipped with all the expected tech you would imagine, for presentations, and audio visual training on site. A dealership this size has many moving parts, and this new buildings seems to accomodate everyone, and everything you would expect from Toyota Dealership looking to the future and being an ever improving service to their community, which they have been a part of for more than 30 years. If you're in the area, stop by and take a look, the friendly and attentive staff will gladly give you a tour. And if you're in the market for a new or used vehicle take advantage of their increased selection and inventory.
