Normandy Park Market opened last month at 19805 First Ave. S. in Normandy Park Towne Center.

The grocery occupies 24,300 square feet in a 30,000-square-foot CMU structure that was built in less than six months by Seattle general contractor Joseph S. Simmons Construction. Remaining space is available for lease.

The new building has two wood-framed towers and a hybrid roof system.

Joe Simmons, president of the company that bears his name, said developer Tom O'Keefe wanted to fill a void in Normandy Park's central business district with the new grocer.

O'Keefe focuses on commercial development, management and investment.

A flyer by broker Kidder Mathews says the six-building Towne Center has spaces available between 653 and 5,650 square feet. Lease rates are $26 per square foot, plus $5.75 triple net.

Lance Mueller & Associates headed up the grocery site and shell design team, assisted by Shutler Consulting Engineers, Barghausen Consulting Engineers, Earth Solutions NW and Main Street Design (landscape). Phillips Enterprises designed the interior finishes and fixtures.

The mechanical and electrical design-build team consisted of Merit Mechanical, RUI, Archer Construction and Hill Electric.

Simmons' team was led by project manager Todd Hartmann and superintendent Chris Damoiseaux.
