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.
