Green Lake’s Spud Fish & Chips to Close
August 2, 2017|Posted in: Green Lake News
We’re sad to say that Spud Fish & Chips at Green Lake will be closing in the near future to make way for development of a mixed-use residential and retail building on its current site. Luckily, the owners plan to lease space in the new building once completed, to bring Spud right back, but we’re probably looking at a couple of years without Spud Fish & Chips in the neighborhood.
No closure date has been set yet, so the timing of when we’ll lose the fish and chips hotspot is uncertain.
According to the Daily Journal of Commerce, the site sold in June for $3.1 million, and redevelopment plans are in the works for a 59-unit apartment building atop a ground floor for retail. Blueprint 6860 LLC was the buyer, purchasing the lot from Craig Smith and Pam Cordova, who own Spud Fish & Chips at the Green Lake location. The married couple initially acquired the property and business in 2001 for a mere (in light of the recent purchase price) $633,000.
The new building will be designed by Cone Architecture, and their preferred design is for a 4-story building on the site. The designs include 54 apartment units that are ‘small efficiency dwelling units’ (SEDUs) that are usually less than 300 square feet and five larger live-work units atop approximately 1,600 square feet of restaurant and retail space. Although parking isn’t required, there would be a large bike room, plus a fitness center and 3,000 square foot rooftop deck facing Green Lake.
The first design review for the new project will take place on September 11th at 6:30 p.m. at Good Shepherd Center.
