The city’s shiny new digs will be open for regular business on Tuesday, May 19th at 4th Ave SW and SW 152nd Street.

Burien’s King County library branch also packed their stacks and started their move this weekend, and is slated to open their new space on June 13th, the day of the big grand opening celebration for Burien Town Square.

PHOTOS: Signs Installed At New Coffeeshop “Burien Press”

On Tuesday morning (April 14th), workers from Western Neon in Seattle installed new signs at “Burien Press,” a soon-to-be-opened coffeeshop/newstand located at 423 SW 152nd, next door to the Australian Pie Company and across from the new town square, city hall and library.

Owner Mark Kerns has been busy over the last few months doing a major renovation, turning the former tattoo parlor space into a coffeeshop/newsstand, which he hopes to open sometime in May. The glass windows on the front were installed by Wakefield Glass, a Burien company.

Kerns promises a “european-style” coffeeshop where visitors can relax, have meetings and enjoy free wi-fi, pastries, coffee and magazines from around the world.

Burien Press already has website up, but with only the logo posted.

Stay tuned to The B-Town Blog for more news as the opening gets closer.
