One week from tonight, the Southwest Design Review Board will get its first look at the newest proposed project at 3257 Harbor Avenue SW, now proposed for 30+ townhouse units – depending on which design alternative moves forward – a short distance north of the bridge. The “design packet” that the board will review, and take public comments about, is available for public preview – see it embedded above, or on the city website, here (57 MB PDF). This will be an Early Design Guidance review, so that means it’s focused primarily on the size, shape, and site placement of the project. The packet by Lemons Architecture PLLC shows three options for how the units would be arranged on the site (starting on page 21). The meeting is at 6:30 pm Thursday, April 6, at the Sisson Building/Senior Center (4217 SW Oregon).
BACKSTORY: A different proposal, centered on apartments, went through one Design Review meeting in 2014, but then was shelved, and we reported first word of the new townhouse plan last fall.
