Early Assistance has been requested for a project at the Troy Laundry building at 1025 SE Pine St:
The Troy Laundry building at 1025 SE Pine is a historic landmark on the National Register of Historic Places. Decades after the original structure (the ‘Main Building’) was built, addition areas were added to the north part of the block. The remainder of the block is a surface parking lot.
If we purchase the property, we will renovate the Main Building. Ideally, this will include an internal renovation, exterior repairs that retain the historic character, and addition of a roof deck to the Main Building. We also expect to redevelop the north half of the site with new construction. This will involve removal of the structures built after Main Building was constructed and replacement with a new building (which will likely be flush with the main Troy Laundry building).
We recognize that this redevelopment project will require a Type III review and, therefore, a pre-application conference (and that this EA does not satisfy that requirement). We are seeking feedback only on the questions we submitted in order to assess initial feasibility during our purchase due diligence period.
