The draft plan for that piece, the 53-acre Tower Mall property located at Mill Plain Boulevard and Devine Road, was unveiled in February.
That plan, which the city calls the Grand Loop, proposes high-density uses at the site’s center, with a residential neighborhood around Park Hill Cemetery and buildings to house creative firms along MacArthur Boulevard. The site would also include a combined 2 acres of parks scattered throughout.
During her February presentation to the city council, Kennedy told councilors that construction on any of these projects was still years away.
“People move here every day, and we need to accommodate that growth,” Kennedy said. “We’re talking about 20 years-plus for a full build out.”
Read more about the plan for the Heights District at the project’s web page, cityofvancouver.us/ced/page/heights-district-plan. The open house won’t include a formal presentation and the public is encouraged to stop by anytime during the scheduled window. Those who can’t attend the event can still view the draft plan online and offer comment for several weeks starting April 12
