A Pre-Application Conference has been scheduled by GBD Architects to discuss a revised concept for 550 SE MLK:
The proposed development is for a 7-story building occupying a site at SE MLK Blvd. and Stark Street – the site is slightly smaller than a half-block, at 17,900 square-feet. The proposed building is planned as a “5-over-2” structure, with 5 levels of Type III wood construction, over 2 levels of Type I concrete construction. The building will remain within the code-allowed height limits of the most restrictive construction type (85 feet), with the highest occupiable floor at a height of less than 75 feet from the lowest point on site (not a high-rise). The building uses include an at-grade parking garage, along with commercial retail spaces, residential amenities and a lobby at the ground floor and residential dwelling units of varying sizes at levels 2 – 7. Parking for the development will be accommodated at grade within the building shell, with multi-level, automated parking stackers and surface parking stalls. Outside of the parking stacker pit structures, no basement level is planned for this project. Two Standard B loading stalls are also accommodated within the garage structure. The garage will be accessible through a 20-foot wide gate located on SE Washington Street, approximately 55 feet east of the SE MLK Blvd. intersection.
