In a nice change of pace, a development at 2321 SE 89th Ave, does not plan to demolish the existing house on the lot. In the request for a Pre Application Conference, the developer noted that the Single Family Residence (SFR) will remain. “Planned development to create three new fourplex apartments (with existing SFR to remain) to create a total of 13 units on the lot.”
The request is case number 20-120342-000-00-EA and was only submitted a few days back on 2/19/2020. As this is just a Pre Application Conference, the final project is not finalized and could still fail to materialize.
Other lots surrounding 2321 SE 89th Ave have been split over the years to add another houses or apartments. They are Flag lots that create a front and back lot with a long driveway along the side of the front lot, leading to the back.
The fact that they are going to get 13 units on one lot, is a testament to how badly we need to increase residential units.
