Preliminary designs released for Main Street Commons project

Main Street Commons preliminary design.

The design of Main Street Commons at 6th and Main is taking shape.

That’s the word from Edmonds native Mike McMurray, who is developing the property. There’s even a new website — — to highlight what’s being planned there.

According to McMurray, three businesses are pending to occupy the Main Street frontage spaces. The Art Alley retail/restaurant spaces are still available, along with the exercise space.

“The town has voiced that they would really like to see establishment of a sushi, vegan, healthy lunch spot, juice bar type business,” said McMurray, who has been soliciting community input for the new space along the way. Ideally, he said, he’d like to see those spots “filled by top requested offerings by locals.”

While the new website shows floor plans, McMurray cautions that they “are fluid and not finalized and may vary.” In addition, current pending tenants and overall plans are subject to change as we are still in pending permit/review process with the City.

The website is intended to give a broad overview of the project and encourage the community to be involved in the process and refine what it will become.

Among the features the community has requested, according to McMurray:

  • A plant-based ice cream.
  • A year-round outdoor Music Stage.
  • A “Rec Room” concept that would include a family-friendly 1980s-style arcade and rollerball.
  • Event space located near downtown Edmonds for local groups to meet and host events.
  • A place for local artists and “creative spirits” to sell their wares and art via market/vendor stalls.

Current information and plans will be updated on the website as the project progresses, McMurray said. Anyone interested in retail space should contact real estate agent Adam Cobb at 206-854-9454 or by email at

“I appreciate the community reaching out with their many ideas,” McMurray said.
