Spa del Lago about to return
Let no one say that you can't get your hair coiffed or your feet pedicured in Madison Park. By our count there are already eleven salons and spas of one kind or another operating here. But they are apparently about to become an even dozen. The "For Sale" sign came down and the "Under New Management" sign went up the other day at Spa del Lago (1929 43rd Avenue E.). The reopening is scheduled for sometime in June.
Spa del Lago, full-service day spa, was a Madison Park mainstay for many years; but in late December it shut down. Part-owner Tom Walsh and some of the crew decamped for space across the street, opening in January as Terzo Salon in the Villa Marina building. The old Spa del Lago space, a first-floor retail condominium unit, has been dark since that time.
Whether the Spa has now been sold or the space just rented out to a new tenant is unclear. The King County Assessor's on-line reporting system does not show a sale of the unit, as of today. But there is often a delay in recording property sales. Spa del Lago's website also offers no clues. It has been up and running all along, indicating that the spa is open for business. It appears that that disconnect is about to be rectified.
