Filmzilla closed this summer, and is in the process of reverting back to the ownership of Chris Johansen, former operator of Crown Video, who sold the building on a contract for deed to Filmzilla in 2010. SCCA has gotten the news that the building has an accepted purchase agreement from business man Louie Kader, whose first venture in Seward you may have noticed over at the Franklin Freeze. (Find out about his partnership with Freeze owner Tabatha Obert here.) Our source has shared that he plans to open a laundromat in the former video store, but we were unable to confirm with Kader himself.

Franklin Avenue Bridge is due for a major reconstruction, scheduled for 2015. Conversations are starting now about how the lanes will be designated and about the construction schedule. Because the entire deck is slated for replacement, SCCA understands that it is likely that the bridge will be completely closed for two months during construction. We will be keeping you in the loop as we find out more, and you can also subscribe for updates directly from Hennepin County here.
