The repeated appeals from Demand Redesign to developer Dan Neal of Eugene-based Paradigm Properties to scale back his project at 7th and Russell have fallen on deaf ears. Mr. Neal is not willing to reduce the height of the building or alter its shape by creating setbacks on the south and west sides. If the project goes forward as designed, it will be an out-of-scale eyesore that will impact infrastructure, compound the parking problems in our neighborhood, and create traffic safety issues and congestion for residents in Eliot and Irvington.
There is one remaining opportunity to influence the course of this inappropriate development.
A spokesperson for the Demand Redesign Steering Committee will make a last-ditch appeal to the Portland City Council on January 28th at 9:30 am. Your presence at this brief meeting can show the City Council we all believe this massive project makes no sense in our neighborhood.
Date/Time: Wednesday, January 28th 2015 at 9:30 AM.
Location: City Hall – 1221 SW 4th Avenue, 2nd floor, Council Chambers
