As reported earlier Friday on My Edmonds News, changes are underway at Salish Crossing. The building at the south end of the Antique Mall is being demolished, as are the colored planters throughout the parking lot.

Echelbarger Properties representative Nick Echelbarger filled us in the details: The parking lot will be made more level and the planting areas will become more pedestrian-friendly. Once the southern-most building is demolished, the space will be allocated to additional parking for Sound Transit commuters and also 2,500-square-foot plaza. The plaza is aligned with the city’s goal of having new pedestrian-friendly gathering spots throughout the city, Echelbarger said.

Despite rumors, there are no confirmed new leases yet, including no firm plans for an indoor market nor a commitment to put a Starbucks into the complex, he said.

Further demolition will continue on Tuesday at the site.

  1. Lisa- all the businesses to the north are wide open, as is the antique mall. All are eager to welcome customers. Our contractors have traffic controls in place for your safety and to maintain the Dayton St entry as well. Thanks for the inquiry.
