The Bakery Blocks

The June 28 inPortland section of The Oregonian has an article about major development at the northern edge of Eliot.

Developer Ben Kaiser has two projects in the works: BackBridge Station, a $14 million mixed-use development with 41 units on Fremont between Vancouver and Williams; and Backbridge Lofts, a 39-unit residential project at the southeast corner of Williams and Fremont.

Groundbreaking for Backbridge Station is scheduled for August.

Then there’s the re-development of the Wonder Bread site, a two-square-block piece of property south of Fremont between Williams and Vancouver. It’s a mixed-used project known as the “Bakery Blocks.”

Alas, the Woodinville, Wash.-based developers, Ivy Street Partners, say there’s not much chance of a grocery store on the site.

Demolition of the Wonder Bread building is scheduled for March, 2008.
