Ed’s Kort Haus closing Sunday after 36 years as redevelopment nears

January 11th, 2017 · No Comments

Ed’s Kort Haus at 6732 Greenwood Ave. N. will close after this Sunday as the developer who owns the property gets ready to demolish the building and replace it with an apartment building.

Ed Warrington has been in business for 36 years. He tells me the developer was “kicking out” his bar, and that he has until the end of the month to clear out of the space.

The neighboring The Goat on Greenwood (which replaced the Stumbling Goat restaurant, but with the same owner, several months ago) told me they “have at least 8 months before anything changes.”

Developer Kelten Johnson did not immediately respond to a request for comment. When the proposed development was first announced in July 2015, Johnson told me that both Ed’s Kort Haus and Stumbling Goat would be offered space in the new building.

The new development, with an address of 6726 Greenwood Ave. N., is proposed to be a four-story building with 55 apartment units, two live-work units, and retail space on the ground floor, with no parking.

The Department of Construction & Inspections has conditionally granted design review and granted a determination of non-significance (with conditions) on environmental impact.

The environmental conditions relate to hours of noisy construction activities and developing a plan to reduce noise impacts. The design review conditions include finalizing exterior lighting, a landscape irrigation plan, arranging solid waste removal services inside the building and not in the public right-of-way, and professional artwork at the building’s residential entry.

Appeals of these conditionally approved decisions can be made to the Hearing Examiner by Jan. 23 (reference project #3020114). You can read the full decision here.
