Update: We just learned the auction has been postponed to March 23.
Edmonds’ Waterfront Antique Mall property will be auctioned to the highest bidder at 10 a.m. Friday, March 9, on the north steps of the Snohomish County Courthouse, 3000 Rockefeller Ave., Everett.
That’s the word from City of Edmonds Economic Development Director Stephen Clifton, who said the Seattle law firm of Hacker & Willig, Inc., PS confirmed Thursday that the auction — which had originally been scheduled for Feb. 24 but then delayed — would go on as planned.
You can see the paperwork related to the trustee’s sale filed with the county here. According to the notice, the building owners owe nearly $195,000 in past-due property taxes, interest and penalties.
The future of the Antique Mall, which sits on 4.3 acres at 190 Sunset Ave. just south of the ferry terminal, has been in question for some time. Al Dykes, managing partner of ESC Associates, the partnership that owns the property, has said in past interviews that he believes the city’s two-story height limit precludes the property from being developed.
