A family known for restoring old Bellingham buildings has purchased a couple of key properties in Lynden.
The sales price for the Dutch Village Mall, known for its 72-foot windmill, was $2.6 million. Bender Plaza was sold for $2.5 million.
Kane Hall is the son of Bob Hall, who is also part of the Canoe Street ownership group. Bob Hall has been involved in the purchase of more than a dozen downtown properties, including the Herald Building.

Kane and Claudia Hall said they don’t plan on any major changes to either of the buildings, which are fully occupied.
The Dutch Village Mall has gone through a major renovation since it was purchased by Neufeldt Properties LLC in 2013 for $1.05 million. The remodel was completed in September 2016 and included fixing the windmill and creating the Mill Inn, a small hotel that has seven rooms. The governing person of Neufeldt Properties LLC is Greg Neufeldt.
“Neufeldt Properties deserves credit for fixing up a building that gives Lynden such a great sense of place and is so iconic to Whatcom County,” Claudia Hall said in a news release, adding that both properties are in great condition.
Bender has more than 18,000 square feet and is home to a variety of tenants including Woods Coffee, The Nuthouse Grill and Cancun Restaurant.
Daylight Properties will manage both properties.
