The construction on North Island is finally finishing up, opening up some new retail space.
Which begs the question: what should go in there? My top ideas are
- An independent bakery and coffee shop
- A Trader Joe’s, though I suspect Mercer Island is too small for it
- A killer dessert place. Could be a new ice cream place now that Maggie Moo’s is gone, or cupcakes, or just desserts.
- A great Indian place.
What we have so far is a new bank:
Useful but not high on the exciting-meter.
