New Apartment Building Permit for 700 Riverside Drive

by Mike Van Houten / Jul 23, 2020

A permit has been submitted for a new apartment building at 700 Riverside Drive, presumably next to the retail complex that houses the Hub, Dorinda's Chocolates and Beaujolais Bistro.

The permit reads: 


Urban Lion II LLC, which I believe is one of the Egan brother's companies, and Desert Wind Homes, are developing it.

    NO! Just where in the hell are patrons of the Hub, Dorinda's and others going to park? This is horrible. Dontcha know "They tore down paradise and made it a parking lot" was not just song lyrics.

    It's only 34 units, and since it's the same developer who developed the complex for Dorinda's and the Hub, I doubt they'd sabotage their own project and inconvenience their existing tenants with no parking. I'm sure they have a plan in place for that.

    Such an abhorrent lack of respect for the natural old growth trees lining the street. There would have been eight trees over 50 feet tall each and much over 50 years old. One has been cut down and the rest are expected to go as well. How sad. All for lining the pockets of public officials and owners of prime real estate that has already made them filthy rich.

    A makeover is not needed. It’s beautiful the way it is. The homes in this area where locals live have no garages and with visitors to the area they will park in front of peoples’ home with removal of this parking lot. This parking lot includes the abilities of people gathering and spending money around Downtown. This could frustrate homeowners because they could lose parking abilities to their own houses. If this is happening make the building no taller than the Hub. Build to match the look of the homes around it.

    I hope it matches the look of the Hub Coffee building. I hope it's not taller than the 50-year-old trees. I hope that people continue to sit on the grass with their dogs. I hope people can enjoy their coffee with views of the river. I hope this isn't gentrification.

    LOL at the folks writing "paved over paradise and put up a parking lot." This is mostly a parking lot now. So they are replacing a parking lot with housing that is badly needed. For the folks who will live next to downtown amenities at an affordable price, it will be paradise!
