Fred Meyer environmental review meeting next week

The next step in the Greenwood Fred Meyer (100 NW 85th St) redevelopment proposal is an environmental review meeting next Thursday, March 11. The meeting is at 7 p.m. at the Loyal Heights Community Center, 2101 NW 77th St.

As our sister site PhinneyWood has reported, the development on 85th Street will demolish the existing Fred Meyer and Greenwood Market, and build a 170,000-square-foot single-story Fred Meyer, with about 250 residential units on top, and about 26,000 square feet of retail for other tenants. A three-story parking garage, and a few small parking lots, would provide parking for nearly 700 cars.

The preliminary designs passed through the Design Review Board last September. Next week’s meeting will focus on environmental issues, since much of the land is on top of Greenwood’s infamous peat bog.

Written and/or oral comments may be submitted at the meeting. This meeting is to receive public comment and provide information relating to soils and hydrology issues and to receive comment on other environmental issues.

What a great improvement to the neighborhood. Maybe the rest of it will finally start cleaning up…

People are really worried about their foundations and the overall stability of the area if they don't do this right. I don't blame them for being concerned, but I hope they get it figured out so that this project becomes a new anchor for a nicer 85th.

I am already mourning the loss of Greenwood market, a great neighborhood place to shop. I hate Fred Meyer's grocery sections and their mega-stores are way too big.

After the awful experience with the sinking Safeway, I'm just not sure what to expect from this.

Cam where will the people who work there live? Not in the apartments that will be bult on top that's for sure.
