DEVELOPMENT: First Southwest Design Review Board date for 3010 SW Avalon Way

Another Avalon Way project has a date with the Southwest Design Review Board. We first reported two years ago about a proposed 8-story apartment building at 3010 SW Avalon Way [map]; then last month, we reported that the project was moving forward. At that time, it was described as going through Administrative Design Review, which would mean no public meetings, but now, a board hearing is planned for 5 pm Thursday, October 21st. The proposal is for 87 apartments and four offstreet-parking spaces. Links to attend the online meeting – which will include a public-comment period – will be here when it gets closer. (Here’s the draft design packet by Studio 19 Architects.)

FRIDAY UPDATE: The tentative date for this hearing has been moved on the city schedule to November 4th.

    Four street parking?  Really!

    Another box with almost no parking.  Shame!

      87 apts, 4 parking? — that IS “NO PARKING” Consider: 1 or 2 handicapped, 1 visitor, 1 service , 1 manager
      Looks like NO PARKING to me

      They can park on the street in front of your house, duh.

      Don’t worry, they will still be required to have 78 indoor bike parking spaces on a ground-level floor that can accommodate everything from ebikes, cargo bikes, trikes, to fat-tire bikes.

      Why would the developer build expensive parking spaces when the city is giving away parking for free?

  • John Mcalpine September 16, 2021 (8:00 am)

    This will be interesting bc the current parking on Avalon is always full.

    Have friends that lives in a Condo on Avalon. RARELY go and visit them because of the parking situation.

    Now this is just going to make it that much worse.

    Unless, of course, the city mandates that ANYONE renting these apartments can NOT own a vehicle and must use bus, bike or walk, EXCLUSIVELY.

    Who says there is no “War on Cars” by the city!!!

Sorry, comment time is over.
