GMG Construction owns the old Guitarville site
Ballard McFarlane, owner of GMG Construction Inc., has purchased the old Guitarville building at 19258 15th Ave NE near where Lake Forest Park and Shoreline meet. GMG is a family-owned, general construction business in Seattle and this is its second location. 

Remodeling has already begun on the property and building to "give it a fresh clean look." Plans for the property include opening an espresso coffee drive-through and leasing space to a real estate brokerage office. 

Ballard said “I like having a challenge and I can see that this old building has a lot of opportunities. I think this is a great location that has a lot of potential to not only grow GMG Construction, but to start new ventures as well. We are very much looking forward to the move.”

Ballard and all of GMG Construction plan to become part of this community and to get involved with the local neighborhoods and surrounding businesses. GMG Construction would like to help promote the economic health of the area as well as enhance its security and safety.
