The whole thing looks suburban - at this stage anyway - but it's replacing a surface parking lot... so... perhaps the bad is outweighed by the good? It's in such an odd spot, with the 405 on one side and a spanish style building on the other (what IS that building?), not to mention the Cathedral School across the street. What an odd mishmash.

That's almost as bad as the project in Sellwood at 13th and Marion. I've got a picture of it somewhere I'll dig up, but it looks like they were both bought from the same mail order catalog.

I agree, it does look suburban. I was more excited to see it going up before the pitched roof came along. But hey, it beats a surface parking lot.

That spanish-style building I think just holds some businesses like a yoga school... maybe someone's house years ago.

The building next door used to be a funeral home and was converted into a Spa several years ago prior to the recession and has since gone out of business. Don't know if anything has moved in to take its place.

The site with the new building was supposed to have a 10+ story building on it at one point (I saw some preliminary stuff for it somewhere once). But the recession claimed that one as well, looks like they scrapped that idea and went a lot shorter, another lost oppurtunity.

Wasn't that called "The Seven"?

Developers plan ‘D Street Village’ for Southeast Division Street

A development team is planning to breathe new life into a vacant retail building and its surrounding neighborhood on Southeast Division Street. And in order to be successful, the group is seeking to differentiate its project from others in the area, as well as address residents’ concerns about traffic congestion.

Green Light Development and Capstone Partners LLC hope to break ground this fall on the first phase of a $12 million development project called the D Street Village around Southeast 31st Avenue and Southeast Division Street.

In the first phase, a former Wild Oats grocery store, approximately 20,000 square feet and vacant since 2006, would be converted into small business offices and retail spaces. In the second phase, two four-story, mixed-use buildings – with a total of 75 apartments – would be constructed. Richard Brown Architect is working on the first phase and STACK Architecture is working on the second.

D-Street Village

D-Street Village is a two-phased project on and around SE Division Street and SE 31st in Portland, Oregon.

Come Join Us…

We plan on presenting information about the project to the Richmond Neighborhood Association on Monday, April 9th, 2012, at 7:00pm. The meeting will be at the Waverly Heights Congregational Church at 3300 SE Woodward St.

The first phase of the project will be the adaptive re-use of the former Wild Oats grocery store that has been vacant since 2006. Our vision is to transform the empty building into a thriving community asset with great retail stores, restaurants, and creative office suites. The building will have internal public spaces, thick exposed beams, exposed trusses, large new windows, and an outdoor patio area.

The second phase of the project will be two, four story mixed-use apartment buildings with ground floor retail on the surface parking lots directly to the east of the former Wild Oats grocery store and across Division Street where the D-Street Noshery Food Carts are currently. We, along with our neighbors, are sad that the carts will be leaving. The good news is that D-Street Noshery Food Carts plan to stay open until late Fall 2012.

Timing:

Work will start on the adaptive re-use portion of the project (Phase 1) in late 2012. Construction should last about 6 months. The new mixed-use buildings (Phase 2) have not been conceptually designed yet nor do we know exactly when we will start building. When we have a better idea of schedule, we’ll let you know. Construction on these buildings should last about 10 months.

Parking:

We know that it is important to our neighbors that new projects in the neighborhood have off-street parking. The good news is that we plan to incorporate parking into our Phase 2 development. This parking will be shared between office, retail, and residential tenants in both phases of D-Street Village.

Looks like Stack Architecture is going to have quite a presence on Division soon with Reliable Parts, Move the House and now an additional two D-Street buildings.

Division is definitely getting a lot of attention lately with all the new construction, start-ups, and media buzz.

Site prep work has started. Site is fenced with construction signs, excavators are on site and are clearing the vegetation.

"Burnside Living, a 132-unit senior living community, is being developed by the Foursquare Foundation of Los Angeles. The project is part of a move by the church to develop some of its underused property into senior housing. KTGY Group Inc. has worked with the church before, and is looking forward to the $29 million Portland project, principal Manny Gonzalez said..."

I was wondering when this was going to get started. This development will really change the nature of that block - walking up Burnside from Le Pigeon toward Old Wives Tales will be much more contiguous. Right now, walking across Sandy feels like a no man's land.

With so much going on up on Williams, this may have already have been mentioned, if not: Four stories of apts at Williams and Beech.

Nice, another step in filling in that dead area at the NW end of the Fremont Bridge. It seems like with the easy access to NW Portland and downtown via the Fremont it should be a gimme to get that area filled in.

While it's certainly welcomed, it would be nice to have some retail at the corner.

Who knows, ground floor live-work can lead to retail/offices.
