Arthur’s Automotive & Upholstery is expanding their shop located at 104 NE 80th Ave. After eight years in this location, they have outgrown the existing space and must increase the building’s capacity or risk turning customers away. The new all-metal structure will double their available workspace, giving them room to grow.
Permit application 21-037713 seeks to add 3120 Square feet of floor space to the existing shop’s 2980 Square feet. The new building will sit just north of the original shop, abutting to the current structure. A roll-up door leading onto NE 80th Ave aligns with an existing driveway, currently providing access to the storage yard. The new building is 40 feet wide and 78 feet long and will occupy a large portion of the unbuilt property. The new shop space extends east past the existing buildings, allowing for two more roll-up doors on the building’s eastern half. Those doors face south onto a gated yard.
This project will allow a growing business to remain in the neighborhood and continue to serve the community. Staying in Montavilla while expanding their business is appreciated by owners Veille and Nicole Arthur. “We are so grateful to have received so many referrals from all the neighbors. They really have made us feel welcome here all this time.”
This new expansion follows a recent repainting of the building and other property enhancements. Look for construction at the site later this year and reach out to the shop at (503) 760 6466 or ArthursAutomotive@yahoo.com if you are interested in having them work on your vehicle.
