Bayview Center due upgrades
Goosefoot will launch the first phase of improvements to Bayview Center on South Whidbey this summer.
The improvements will include parking lot renovation, a safer and more attractive entrance from Highway 525, a landscaping makeover, and general conservation work, clean up and repainting.
Gordy Edberg, Goosefoot board president and architect, said, “We are excited to begin moving ahead to improve Bayview Center. The center is in need of old-fashioned elbow grease clean-up, common-sense safety and energy upgrades, as well as some creative touches.”
To support these improvements, Goosefoot will be selling three of its Bayview Corner properties in the coming months, including parcels of 6.1 acres and 5 acres, and the Sears House, a restored Sears kit house and outbuilding that was relocated from the Greenbank Farm.
Goosefoot will continue to own nine acres at Bayview Corner if all three parcels are sold. This includes the Cash Store and its surrounding landscaped “campus,” the large open space bordered by Highway 525 and Bayview Road, and 3.5 acres with development potential behind the Sears House.
Goosefoot also owns eight acres of property at Bayview Center, including the retail structures housing Casey’s Red Apple and Neil’s Clover Patch Café.
