Well, another commercial space is on the market. And that’s a good thing considering the glut of idly-sitting buildings that are neither for sale nor for lease. Unfortuanately, it also spells the apparent end of a longtime, neighborhood business—Lansing Linoleum.
The property in question is a rarity for Foster: usable space with an owner who has not allowed the building to fall into disrepair. The building, located at 7303 SE Foster, currently houses one of the neighborhood’s most established, family-run businesses.
The bonus? A rare piece of commercial real estate that is move-in ready; near the future Portland Mercado; just a block from Firland Parkway and the business strip of SE 72nd; across the street from a nursery. We’ll go ahead and ignore the fact that the former Grandma’s Funky Furniture site is next door selling God-knows-what. But that’s just part of the charm, right?
Good luck to the folks at Lansing Linoleum if they are indeed ending their tenure in the neighborhood.
