Mike McMenamin Gives the Chamber an Anderson School Update
Article by By TJ Martinell and Deanna Isaacs
Bothell-Kenmore Reporter

"Speaking at a recent Greater Bothell Chamber of Commerce event, Mike McMenamin, of McMenamin's, Inc., offered photos of the construction and work involved in transforming the 80-year-old, art-deco style Anderson School and those surrounding it into a hotel entertainment complex; set to open Oct. 15.

McMenamin described it as the biggest project they've attempted at one time which, when finished, will be run by a staff of approximately 225 employees. Among the amenities planned for the location along Bothell Way Northwest are 72 hotel guest rooms, restaurants, brewery, a garden, a first-run movie theater and swimming pool. They will also have numerous meeting spaces, with the largest at 4,500 square feet."
