A developer has submitted a preliminary application to the city of Vancouver to build two satellite buildings in the Vancouver Mall parking lot, one of which is described as a drive-thru coffee stand.
The proposed buildings would be located at the outer edge of the south side of the parking lot, slightly east of the Vancouver Mall transit center and near the Hobby Lobby (formerly Sears) tenant space.
The pre-application outlines plans for a 3,000-square-foot commercial building and a 574-square-foot coffee shop. A site diagram depicts the coffee stand with two drive-thru lanes, one on each side, and also shows a drive-thru lane wrapping around the larger commercial building.
If the proposed project is built, it would be the second satellite development at the Vancouver Mall, not counting the transit center.
Plans for the first development appeared in the fall of 2018 when the mall’s parent company, Centennial Real Estate, submitted a preliminary application to build an approximately 10,000-square-foot building at the southwest corner of the parking lot.
