NuHealth Clinic in Vancouver eyes move to mixed-use building

Proposed location is just down the street from business’s current site

By , Columbian staff writer

NuHealth Clinic may soon be moving to a new mixed-use building just down the street from its current location.

A building incorporating both housing and space for the clinic has been proposed for the new site, according to pre-planning documents sent to the city of Vancouver.

The new location, at 515 E. McLoughlin Blvd., is on a roughly 5,800-square-foot lot, which is zoned for community commercial development. It’s just a block and a half from the clinic’s current location at 1801 D St.

The property is owned by Dr. Nadene Naele and Shane Wallack, who bought it last year. Naele is a naturopathic physician and owner of NuHealth Clinic.

The clinic offers a hydrotherapy treatment room, on-site lab and testing, supplement auto-ship program, nutrition and dietary support, botanicals and herbal remedies, homeopathy, nutritional supplements and kombucha on tap, according to its website.

The building’s ground floor, which would come in at 3,462 square feet, would house the naturopathy clinic, while upstairs would provide 2,849 square feet of apartment space.

The plans currently call for four apartments on the upper floor, with dedicated entrances off F Street.

The site plans for two additional parking spaces, including one disability-accessible van parking space and a compact space. The proposal mentions that there are several surrounding street parking stalls and planned bike parking stalls for the remaining parking.

Part of the building that faces F Street will be built as a single apartment over a garage-style mixed-use space. This is meant to mimic the scale of the residential buildings in the area.

The planning documents said this part of the building would promote an active space along F Street, improve the visual interest of the building and maintain a separation between its business functions on McLoughlin Boulevard and its residential functions along F Street.

There is currently a single-family home on the property, which is surrounded by other homes and single-story retail and business buildings. The home will be removed to make way for the new building.
