Earlier this month, crews demolished the detached garage at 8739 SE Washington Street to make way for a new home. Only a concrete slab remains from the original structure. The existing 1947 era home will stay on the property, unaltered by this work.
Demolition permit 20-180023 allowed for the deconstruction of the detached garage. Land Use 19-267610 will separate the property into two lots. The scale and amenities of the future house are not yet known. However, with the demolition completed, progress on this development can now progress.
8739 SE Washington Street recently split into two lots, allowing for the addition of a new single-family residence. That new house will face SE 88th Ave and should have an address on that street.
The existing 1947 era house will remain on the site. Removal of the existing detached single-car-garage will be necessary to make way for the new structure. A ten-foot-wide sewer easement is a requirement of the lot division. It will run along the side of the original house from Washington Street to the back lot.
UPDATE – Demolition permit 20-180023 is under review with the city. It seeks to demolish the detached garage in preparation for building a new single-family residence.
