More Homes Yet for Holgate

IMG_1005These things always happen in threes, right?  Oh wait, that’s something else.  Still, a third housing development for a two-and-a-half-block stretch of Holgate is certainly newsworthy.

Thanks to one of our readers, we were alerted to a third (yes, a third!) potential development that will add up to six new homes to the northwest corner of SE 65th and Holgate.  This is in addition to seven or eight homes planned for the now vacant lot across the street, as well as those currently under construction on 67th and Holgate.

As per Portland Maps, the site would include six condos in a three story building.  Currently under permit review, the proposed development would be next door to the Wikman Building and across Holgate from SEIU.  If approved, the six units would bring the total planned for this stretch of Holgate to 20—all between SE 65th and 68th when Screen shot 2013-09-17 at 9.49.52 PMfully built.

A population boom?  Kind of.

A face lift?  It would appear so.

And with Foster Green seeking city-adoption of a Laurelwood Park redesign, and the Wikman-Arleta project still alive (barely?), this stretch of Holgate is in store for big changes.  More to come, I’m sure.

    I just hope they do something about the speedy traffic on that section of Holgate, especially now that there are potentially 20 new families moving in. Perhaps it’s time for some speed humps. Cars routinely drive through there around 45 mph.
