Columbia Palisades lots at old Fisher Quarry get new plan

A portion of the enormous Columbia Palisades project is being reimagined, according to new preplanning documents submitted to the City of Vancouver.

The portion comprises parts of two lots sitting northwest of the intersection of Southeast 192nd Avenue and Southeast Brady Road. It was originally slated to house 100,565 square feet of office space on one lot and 43,216 square feet of commercial space on the other. The buildings would both have offered retail space on the bottom floor.

The new plan includes three mixed-use buildings featuring both commercial and residential space. There would be 150 multi-family units, about 20,000 square feet of commercial services area and 300 square feet of commercial sales space.

The first would be a mixed-use building six stories high; the second would be another six-story mixed-use building; and the third would be a small single-story retail building. Also on the property would be a public plaza, as well as above-ground and underground parking.

The two large buildings would include 10,300 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor and 58,000 square feet of residential spaces on the remaining five floors, broken into one- and two-bedroom units. Each floor would have 12 one-bedroom units and three two-bedroom units.

There would be 271 parking spots, and 20 two-bike lockers.

The property used to be home to the Fisher Quarry, which was mined for gravel beginning in the 1880s, so most of the surfaces are either gravel or fill. It is currently zoned for mixed uses.

The 84.2-acre Columbia Palisades project has been approved for office, commercial, multi-family residential, single-family homes, townhomes, parks and useable open space. It will have a “lifestyle center” ambiance like Bridgeport Village in Tigard or the Pearl District in Portland, said the project’s vice president, Ed Freeman, on the development’s website.

The website describes the community as pedestrian-oriented.
