Haha, OMG!

April Fool’s day is in the rear-view mirror, but this image had us cracking up. Reader Reinhard Freywald wanted to know if, indeed, a Starbucks is coming to Ninth Avenue South in Edmonds.

Economic Development Director Patrick Doherty (he email giggled) confirmed that it’s a prank.

The large mansion, seemingly taking forever to complete on Ninth just south of Hemlock Street, is in a residential zone.

We're not sure if it's a statement as to the rapid gentrification of Edmonds – galleries! poke! galleries! baby strollers! Or maybe just the sheer grandeur of it all – doesn't anyone build ramblers anymore?

No word if the construction crew is steamed.
