Handy Mart at 228th/44th Sold at Auction

The Handy Mart property at the southwest corner of 228th St SW and 44th Ave W/Cedar Way was recently sold at auction for $585,000. Documents seem to indicate that the property may have been foreclosed on and the property had been listed for sale for over a year. The property last sold in 2005 for $650,000. The Handy Mart business was closed in 2015 due to unpaid tax bills.

The property currently contains a mini-mart housed in a 3,000 square foot building constructed in 1964 and a surface parking lot. The property is currently zoned as Community Business (BC). Uses for properties in the BC zone can generally be commercial/medical/healthcare. Multi-family housing is allowed as part of a mixed-use development. Building heights are limited to three stories for this property.
