from the zoning document referenced above:
The applicants indicate the purpose for the requested amendments is to allow the development of 28 to 36 dwelling units and 6,000 to 7,000 square feet of ground level commercial space.
i don't mind getting rid of the gas station/ford model t repair shop, nor will i miss the old marions furniture building which by the way i have never seen a sould in. what i will miss is the old victorian house. it's got good bones and instead of moving it, i could see them just tearing it down - hmmmm - just had an idea......... move it. hmmmmmm.
secondly, 28-36 dwelling units. i won't go into it, but we already have some cheap apartments in the hood. we don't need more.
i am glad to see development though, all of it is part of the major plan for n. interstate now that max is in. even Kaiser is building a new building for radiation treatment and a new parking garage. as i was walking home yesterday, i looked into the construction side and there was a little kitty walking amongst the steel beams, checking things out.
lastly - future home of North Portland Farmer's Market:
sorry it's so dark, my camera is getting a bit wonky.
