Major Development Being Planned for Alaska and Rainier

MapOver the past few weeks, I’ve had a few people ask if I know anything about the major development that’s being planned for the area around the post office and Burdick’s Security, just past the NW corner of Alaska and Rainier. Neighbor-in-the-know, Scott, recently posted this site plan to Columbia City Source’s Projects and Development Map (which is always accessible by clicking the link at the top of the page).

The description of the projects reads as follows:

“Construct 318,500 sq ft, 4-story mixed use building with 379 parking spaces.”

Taking a look at the initial site plan, this is a big project, with plans to demolish the post office building, keep the Burdick Security building, and build all the way up to Rainier with more retail and multiple stories. Johnston Architects submitted the proposal. Their work can be seen here.

Of course, at this point, nothing is finalized…but this would definitely be another enormous change to the neighborhood. If anyone has anymore information, be sure to let us know. Site Plan

    WOW time’s are changing for sure. It’s amazing to see the Valleys growth since 1995. Hopefully folks don’t get priced out the process! Yeah keep me in the loop

    So where are we to do our postal needs. Go all the way downtown?

    I heard the post office was going to close no matter what. I don’t think this development is the cause of that closure.
