Tearing Down Totem Lake Mall

Most of Totem Lake Mall in Kirkland is getting torn down. I remember before the mall was built, walking in the field where the upper mall now exists with my friend Brian. (Totem Lake was never a real lake, but more of a duck pond.)

Well, now it is getting torn down. You can see how these storefronts were emptied out in preparation.



The truth, is Totem Lake Mall has not been a happening place for years. It was not even a place I would go to write, since the fluorescent lights overhead had an incredible buzzing sound. So now it is getting torn down.




We’re told something newer and better will take its place. I hope so.

Hi Mark -- Am wondering if anyone had old photos of Totem Lake Mall that they're willing to share here on your blog. Now that the mall as we knew it is gone, it would be interesting to see various snapshots through the years from others' perspectives. Whether we loved that mall or not, it's gone now. Am looking forward to the new one but still like to reminisce about the way it was.

I'm afraid not. No one offered photos of the mall in business.
