I know street trees are sometimes left out on renderings, but the Atomic Orchard render makes it look like there’ll be narrow sidewalks, no trees, and it’ll be a generally unpleasant place to be. I recall Cavenaugh tried to get away with no Sandy Blvd street trees at the Zipper, so maybe he’s figured out how to place the vaults and utilities here so that no trees will fit.
Looks pretty depressing from that side. Also I’m not certain on all the building limits, but there is no way those roll up windows will be allowed on the top floor of the building.
“..but there is no way those roll up windows will be allowed on the top floor of the building.”
Why not? I don’t see any issue as long as the sill is over 42″
His legacy of shitty architecture will sadly be around for a long time in this neighborhood. His brand of gimmickery for gimmickery’s sake architecture needs to go. The joke is over.
Regarding the Atomic Orchard: I personally grappled with Cavanaugh on the Zipper and The Ocean/The Shore developments at NE 24th and Sandy. I had to contact the city and got them to conform to the approved plans that included street trees. They finally did. May have to do the same for this project; Sandy is a pretty barren street and would greatly benefit from shade on sidewalks and street trees.
With Modera Woodstock at 4804 SE Woodstock Blvd and 5105 SE Woodstock Blvd that is a whole lot apartments (222) going up on Woodstock. I for one am excited for the continued development along this corridor. Now if only we could turn those parking lots in front of Safeway and Bi-Mart into something more than vehicle storage.
