Warrior Field has been identified as the potential future site for a community commons project, a mixed-use development aimed at providing affordable housing and promoting the economic development of Vancouver’s Fourth Plain Corridor.
The project, which would include a ground-floor commons and at least 65 apartments, would rise on the parcel at the Southwest Corner of Norris Road and East Fourth Plain Boulevard next to Vancouver Fire Station 2.
The plan is for the commons to become an economic development hub complete with a commercial kitchen, shared offices, classrooms, a community event space and an outdoor space for a satellite Vancouver Farmers Market, according to Andrea Pastor, economic development planner for the city.
Pastor said the city would host agencies focused on upstream economic development, such as Workforce Southwest Washington, Hispanic Metropolitan Chamber and Lighthouse Community Credit Union.
“Its in the very, very early stages, but we’re pretty excited about it,” Pastor said.
