A Pre-Application Conference has been scheduled to discuss a project at 1500 NE Sandy Blvd:
This project is a retail development on a contiguous city block. Leasable retail space consists of approximately 16,000 sf total. 12,500 sf of the space is designated for a specialty grocer which includes a covered (WB-67) size truck loading dock, plus (+/-) 3,700 sf space for another retail tenant. There is one (1) level of subterranean parking consisting of (97) parking stalls. The parking plan utilizes the space under the sidewalks out to the edge of the street curb above (at 6 feet below grade). The project is requesting relief from street parking on both sides of NE 16th Ave. or NE Couch Street (depending on which option is used) to allow for truck maneuvering into the loading dock. The project is requesting the removal of the left turn restriction at NE 16th Ave. and NE Sandy Blvd for westbound truck traffic to allow trucks to travel southbound on NE 16th Ave., which will minimize truck circulation through the surrounding neighborhood. The general area has added a significant number of new apartment units and lacks a local grocery store. This development will eliminate a significant number of local automobile trips on NE Sandy Blvd. and NE Couch Street for residents east of the river looking for grocery shopping. The nearest large grocer is over a mile away to the east.
