UPDATE: The Stein Haus main building will be saved.
The building that housed Stein Haus bar, then other businesses and again Stein Haus bar, is being torn down. Permit 19-253142-000-00-RS calls for the building at 2366 SE 82nd Ave to be removed. “Demolish single family residence with basement to be filled.”
The demolition is not surprising, as it has sat empty for nearly a year. With the neighboring property on SE 82nd Ave. being developed into Pacific Plaza, it was expected to be next for demolition.
CSS Properties LLC owns 2366 SE 82nd Ave, 2464 SE 82nd Ave, and the property behind it, 2410 WI/ SE 82nd Ave. The combined lots will become a large property with frontage on SE 82nd Ave, SE Division Street and SE 83rd Ave. CSS Properties LLC bought 2366 SE 82nd Ave 02/28/2019 when Stein Haus closed. Back in the middle of 2018, CSS Properties LLC had submitted a proposal for a $3,457,108 project at 2410 SE 82nd Ave. They wanted to build a one story commercial building. That project never proceed past the initial steps. Development of that project likely morphed into what is now Pacific Plaza.
The Stein Haus lot was not part of the Pacific Plaza project as submitted to the city. However, being owned by the same LLC would indicate its development will likely compliment the work being done adjacent to it at Pacific Plaza.
