One of Issaquah's oldest motels is coming down, piece by piece, until the land at the corner of Front Street and Gilman Boulevard is vacant. The Houvar ("Who-AH- vet") Motel, which has sat on that corner since 1949, is about to be dismantled and resurrected into Skipper's Seafood and Chowder House. Helja and John Huovar bought and cleared the land in the early 1930s, when it was a stumpy pasture. Then, in 1940 the highway came through and cut the property in half, and under a deal from the state, the Houvars got a free house in exchange for the property they lost on the road. In 1949, John Houvar and Charlie McQuade built the motel with four rooms. They charged $4 a night. "We never had trouble fill- ing the motel," recalls Helja, who now lives on Dogwood Street. She remembers when the World's Fair came to Seattle in 1962 and they were booked for months in ad- vance. Then boat racing came to Lake Washington and ever since there has never been a summer day when the "NO" sign flashed before the neon "Vacancy." After her husbmd's death in the early 1970s Helja took over the management of the motel. She says she worked hard to keep it maintained, but sometimes the job got too difficult. "We'd put up the 'No Vacancy' sign when we had to catch up with the work." In the early days she did all the cleaning and ironing herself. As time passed, Helja got overwhelmed by the work and the occasional boarders who came and walked off with everything removable in the rooms. "Most people were very nice," she says. "But people have changed over the last twenty years.' I got scared to be there alone." She sold the property to U.S. Realty in "Bellevue in 1978. The commercial real estate firm is owned by Bill Schourup, who says he bought the land with an eye for developing it. "We were waiting for the best offer," says Schourup. "We wanted a bank to come in, but none ever came along." He also thought about a 7- I I convenience store, Taco Time or Wendy's Ham- burgers, but each idea was re- jected by the city, he says. Last year the city approved of Skipper's and it is slated to begin construction in the next month. The nautical-style restaurant featuring all-you- can-eat nights and "slower than fast food" service will probably be open for business this summer. The sale to Skipper's did not include the little house that still faces Front Street. Schourup said he onto the house something Skipper's is the project will Skipper's. "They are we desserts," says said maybe the hoUSe converted to an i parlor. Helja says she feeling about the being torn down. "It just means people won't stop quah anymore," The old Huovar Motel Is torn down. Biggest office building in town goes up The largest office building in lssaquah is about to be built on an acre of land in front of the Holiday Inn. It will sit on dozens of pilings sunk 65 feet into the soggy earth and stand two stories high facing the gravel pits. The building is known as the Issaquah Park Plaza, but developers Rick Ryerson and Tom Robinson of Bellevue expect to eventually name the building after its largest te- nant. So far, there are no commitments from potential occupants. "We are still negotiating," says Ryerson. The property has had a long history of unfulfilled plans. Originally the city granted permission for a sub- urban office building on the land in 1979, but since it was in the moratorium area, no building was permitted until the moratorium was lifted. Owners decided to dedicate a large greenbelt to the city, which left the rest of the pro- perty outside the restricted area..By that time, however, the. developer ran out of funds to build and it was Robinson and The spot is Ryerson, because imity to the 405 and Interstate easier to get out that important route than it is to Seattle or Bellevue. because "We have manY people." Ryerson expects to move into August. For Mark H. Cohn, O.D.
