What’s Happening at…
Pars Market closes
Iraj Talepasand and Azar Tavakoli are closing up their grocery and café after seven years of bringing us intriguing Middle Eastern groceries, deli items, and delicious grilled lunch fare. Iraj is anxious to return home to take care of his mother, who is 95! Their lease is up June 15. They have sold most of the stock, but there might be time to get one last falafel or gyros!
Tim Fettkether, who owns the building, says, “NextHome Realty Connection will be moving into the space. Their lease begins June 16, however they won't be operational in the space until August 1. Steve Roesch is the Owner and Principal Broker.”
We’re sad to see the sidewalk café go away. Tim notes, though, that the size of the space, about 900 square feet, limits the appeal to many tenants. He continues, “But I am happy to have a new community oriented business in the building.”
Laughing Planet opening soon
Cedar Mill’s newest “Portland-style,” locally-based restaurant is set to open on June 23, according to CEO Franz Spielvogel. They join Grand Central Bakery in choosing Cedar Mill as their first westside location. I think people are catching on that Cedar Mill is full of smart folks who appreciate local food! We can’t wait for those bowls, burritos and smoothies!
Old Cedar Mill fire station takes on new life
If you’ve driven down Cornell Road recently you may have noticed that the old Cedar Mill fire station has a fresh and vibrant look with new grey and red paint. The owners of Motor Sports International have retired and closed the auto repair business they had in the building for many years. Brothers Jeremy and Justin Williams of German automotive specialist Matrix Integrated, who grew up in the area, have purchased the property and updated it. Both Jeremy and Justin are extremely excited to be an integral part of the Cedar Mill community again!
Matrix Integrated is an independent, family-owned German automotive workshop, specializing in diagnosis, repair, maintenance, and performance solutions for Audi, BMW, Mercedes, MINI Cooper, Porsche and Volkswagen vehicles.
They’ve been in business since 1999, employing 11 staff members, including many ex-dealership personnel, certified and master technicians. Their main (downtown) workshop is located in the South Waterfront District. Their new Cedar Mill (Westside) workshop is their second location, aimed at making the finest German automotive services more convenient for those on the west side of the metro area.
Stop in to say hello to the Matrix Westside crew, including canine greeter Boo, at 12930 NW Cornell Rd., or give them a call at 503-747-5780. To find out more about Matrix Integrated visit www.matrixintegrated.cc.
Great Bones has moved
The Rasmussen family has found a new location for their unique bone-building exercise business. They are now at 8835 SW Canyon Lane, #312. You can still call them at 503-575-9261 to set up your two free introductory sessions.
The former space at 485 NW Saltzman, in the “triangle” mall at the corner of Saltzman and Cornell, is available through Norris & Stevens, 503-223-3171.
