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.
