Metro Reports: Pearl Building East, Bridgeport Brewery, 1531 N Alberta, and more

Pearl Building East
The Pearl Building East was approved in 2017, however the approval is now expiring. Review of the building permit, submitted in 2019, was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. City Council is currently considering an ordinance that would extend the life of land use reviews approved in the past three years. If Council does not adopt an amendment that would let Pearl East move take advantage of this the project will need to be re-submitted for a Type III Historic Resource Review.

Every week, the Bureau of Development Services publishes lists of Early Assistance applications, Land Use Reviews and Building Permits processed in the previous week. We publish the highlights. This post covers July 6th, 2020 to July 12th, 2020.

Early Assistance has been requested for a project at 2359 SE 124th Ave:

Applicant proposes to develop the project site to support a new commercial/retail building. The lot is currently vacant and has some existing structures and paved areas which will be removed in preparation for the proposed improvements. The lot is zoned CM2 and all improvements will fall under the allowed outright uses of the CM2 zone. Proposed site improvements include the construction of two buildings, a driveway and a parking/loading area in between the two buildings. All stormwater runoff from the impervious parking area will be disposed on-site via an infiltration swale and roof runoff will be retained and infiltrated onsite via drywells underneath the parking area. Building construction will be phased such that the rear building will be constructed first.
