What’s currently going on behind four white walls in University Village isn’t much different than what is happening around the rest of Seattle. But what will replace the parking lot that is being torn up remains something of a mystery.

WATB: Old Seattle fire station will become low-income housing

According to documents from the city, preliminary work on a retail building is underway.

Plans call for a single-story building with a “partial basement” for the back of house. According to U-Village marketing director Leanne Strohmeier, the building will be approximately 12,000 square feet.

However, exactly what will occupy that building has not been disclosed.

“We haven’t announced this new tenant, but we are in the early stages of constructing a small retail building…” Strohmeier wrote.

A request for more information from the primary applicant developing has not been returned.

Documents show the primary space in the building will be a “sales area.”

The value of the property is $5.2 million.
