Community Post | Massage moves and yoga stays on Capitol Hill

As a reminder, anybody can post to CHS — and many bodies do! Thanks to jstew1022 for sharing this update on the Greenus Building tenants with CHS. — jseattle

The Greenus Building at the corner of Summit and E Pike has been sold.  Known to most of us “that building with the costume shop on the corner”, The Greenus building was originally owned by the Dreambrosio brothers who owned and ran Brocklind’s Formal Wear and Costumes. Read more about the building sale here.  The other cornerstone in the Greenus building is 8 Limbs Yoga, which opened its yoga studio there in 1996. According to Owner Anne Phyfe Palmer “8 Limbs has just negotiated a lease with Hunters Capital to stay in The Greenus Building. We feel very positive about the new landlords and their commitment to their tenants and this neighborhood”.   While 8 Limbs Yoga will be staying, the redesign of their studios will result in the loss of their massage space.  Jeremy Steward of JSteward Bodywork who has been practicing on Capitol Hill since 2002, will be relocating to the Areis building in the Eastlake neighborhood.

Velocity Dance on pace for September opening on 12th Ave

Remember CHAC at 1621 12th Ave? Remember Crave? (thank you Robin!). Wondering who’s going to move in to that space? Or when??

Well, starting this summer Velocity Dance Center will be renovating part of the first floor to include 3 dance studios, one large enough to convert into a theater, and a street front office space. After calling the Oddfellows Building their home for 13 years, Velocity Dance Center has secured a long-term lease at the 1621 12th Ave space.

Velocity’s move is possible thanks in large part to landlord Elizabeth Linke, one of the few landlords on Capitol Hill willing to make the sacrifices necessary to keep rent affordable for non-profit arts organizations (Mrs. Linke also owns the 1515 12 Ave building which houses the awesome Northwest Film Forum).

Velocity plans to open up their new space this September, offering a variety of weekly classes, and contemporary dance programs and performances. Their grand opening is slated for this fall with an Annual Kick Off featuring local dance artists and favorite performers. Now does any restaurateur want to take over the old Crave space and be their neighbor?
