According to an Early Assistance Intake, a pre-application conference has been scheduled for a nine-lot subdivision at 6025 SE Powell. While not technically part of Foster-Powell, this north-side Powell location is best known as Dennis’ 7 Dees.
Sitting across the street from the Foster-Powell Community Garden, the landscape and garden center has long been a staple of neighborhood businesses, and they’ve also donated to such causes as the yearly FoPo Garden Tour and aforementioned community garden across the street.
To be clear, no homes have been proposed to be built. And maybe the subdivision is some sneaky way to divide tax lots. But we don’t think that to be the case. Land’s valuable in Portland, and 7 Dees is sitting on 2+ acres of land where property values have been soaring and a future Bus Rapid Transit line is being considered.
Possible development could be a long ways away, but it appears the writing’s on the wall. Good thing we have that A-Boy Garden Center on Foster…oh, wait…
