PORTLAND, Ore. – Property currently home to a garage and parking lot is the site of a proposed 11-story building in the Pearl District.
The property, located at 115 NW 9th at the intersection of 9th and Couch, lists Couch9 LLC as its owner. Couch9 LLC is registered to OLG Registry Services LLC, with no other names listed.
The proposed development would include around 145 residential units, 7,000 square feet of commercial space, and about 80 parking spaces.
Sales were recorded for the parking lot and garage in November. The parking lot sold for $2,250,000 and the garage for $1,125,000, according to city data.
In August, the city gave notice of a pre-application conference, to discuss design review on “a 9-story, mixed use building.” The applicant was Don Vallaster of Vallaster Corl Architects. This architecture firm is involved with a development in the Buckman neighborhood previously profiled by the Portland Chronicle.
A public hearing was schedule for Nov. 6 for the Design Commission to review the project. While the initial application described a nine-story development, the notice of public hearing calls the proposed project an “11-story” building. An application for a Type III procedure received earlier this month also describes an 11-story building.
The next step will likely be for the commission to issue its decision, followed by the opportunity for appeal to City Council.
The proposed development would take up three quarters of the east side of the block face.
Part of the garage, built in 1920, is currently home to West Side Auto Services, an auto body shop.
