We spoke to Billy Poll, the listing agent for the vacant space at 401 15th Avenue East previously occupied by Tilden, who confirmed that the space has just been leased. He urged us to speak to the future tenant’s representative, Marina Kabatskaya of Ewing and Clark, who could only confirm that a restaurant would be occupying the space. We urge you to put on your thinking hats and provide your best guess as to who the future occupant of this prominent 2660 sq ft space will be.
Our best guess (and abiding hope) is that the new tenant is Txori. We know that owner Carolin Messier has speculated about reopening this beloved Belltown tapas spot on 15th Avenue. However, this amount of space is more than triple the square footage Txori occupied in Belltown (812 sq ft).
Who would be a good fit for this space?
