The Lakeshore Weekly News is reporting that the Original Pancake House has agreed to leave the Wayzata Bay Center by October 1. Owners Ken and Karen Savik were the last remaining long term tenants housed in the Bay Center.

The agreement between Presbyterian Homes and the Original Pancake house was finalized on April 8, 2011, according to the article. This should clear the way for the developer to move forward on plans for senior housing, retail, and a hotel.

The Pancake House will remain open through August 15, 2011, and the Saviks continue to look for a new location to relocate the business.

Presbyterian Homes vice president of development John Mehrkens indicated earlier this year that he hopes to begin demolition of the site this summer.
