The Alexander, a 4 story mixed use building, is under construction at 50 SE 13th Ave. The building will include 69 residential units, with a mix one and two bedroom apartments. A retail space will front onto E Burnside St. 17 vehicle parking stalls and 112 long term bicycle parking spaces will be provided. The project design is by Myhre Group for developer Urban Development Group.
The site at SE 13th and Burnside was previously home to the restaurant Old Wives Tales, which shut in May 2014 after 34 years in business.
Exterior materials include cast in place concrete, stack bonded brick veneer, cement fiber lap siding and cement fiber paneling with metal reveals.
A permit for the demolition of the former restaurant building was issued in January 2015, and work on site began shortly afterwards. A building permit for the new building was issued in February 2015. The project is scheduled for completion in 2016.
