SGNA/Lloyd District Redevelopment – Lloyd Cinema and Sears Parking Lots
On April 4, 2018, DJ Heffernan and Kathy Hansen met with Cassidy Bolger of the development design team for this project. We had previously submitted written and oral testimony to the Design Review Commission about pedestrian safety and access concerns and comments on design elements, especially the proposed facade colors. Our concerns resonated with the Commission and led to changes in the design. Cassidy Bolger shared proposed changes us, which included widening the pedestrian access way through the project, reducing and lifting the proposed landscaping, altering the location and function of two water features, and shifting building footprints to improve sightlines through the project.
On April 5, 2018 we testified in support of these changes, which the Commission approved. They also approved alternative brick colors and entrance designs for live work units fronting NE 16th Avenue. That change lightens up the façade. Finally we testified that we would like the four parking spaces that face the end of the pedestrian walkway on 15th Street replaced with a taxi/car share drop off. The development manager for the mall was in attendance and assured the Commission they would look into making that change with Regal Cinema. The project’s overall scope remained unchanged: ~1244 apartments, 45,000 sq. ft. commercial, 805 underground parking spaces (120 for retail use and 685 for residents).
The next step in the process relates to timing. Earlier at the April 5 PDC meeting, the Commission approved the facade material and color for the redesign of the Sears wing. Before anything happens on redevelopment of the cinema bldg.. and Sears parking lot, the Developer will construct Phase 1 (1400 Multnomah) on the parking lot west of the existing cinema building. The Mall will remodel the Sears building to provide replacement cinema space for Regal. After Phase 1 is complete and the cinema moves, the cinema building will be demolished and a new mixed use apartment building will be constructed on that lot (Phase 2-A). Then work on the mixed-use apartment buildings (1510 NE Multnomah) on the Sear’s parking lot will begin (Phase 2-B). All of this is expected to take place over the next 7 to 10 years, so a long construction timeframe before all is completed.
