In response to the explosion at 85th and Greenwood, The PNA and its business members are creating an action plan to provide relief to the area. We are grateful to be part of a community that quickly steps up to help. We’ll update you as we go along.
Windermere Greenwood and our real estate Brokers were shocked to learn in the early morning hours of March 9th 2016, Three of our neighboring businesses were entirely leveled by a natural gas explosion. Mr. Gyros, Neptune Coffee and QuickStop Mini-Market were completely destroyed. Dozens of other businesses and apartments had windows and doors shattered and additional damage. Our office, luckily, had only minor damage with a few broken lights and shattered picture frames.
Our hearts go out to our neighboring businesses affected by this devastating accident. We will be supporting the Phinney Neighborhood Association relief efforts by donating funds individually and as a PNA member business.
Checks can be made out to Phinney Neighborhood Association with “Greenwood disaster relief” in the memo and sent to:
PNA – Greenwood Relief Fund

We will also support neighborhood fundraising efforts and invite you to help our community rebuild. Please click the link below to learn about events in support of the staff and businesses of Greenwood
