Here are a few items I noticed in the latest Bellingham building permit applications:
-- The new H&M clothing store is going into the former Big 5 space, according to a building permit application. The remodel for the 19,000-square-foot space will include a new store front on the outside at the entrance near Macy's.
-- An application was filed for a four-story mixed-use building in Fairhaven at 1140 10th St. The project name is South Bay Suites.
-- A permit was approved to begin phase one of a 21,000-square-foot medical building at 2500 Squalicum Parkway.
-- A permit was issued for a remodel of building to put in a retail pharmacy at 300 E. Sunset Drive.
