Hello! By now you’re probably aware that something is brewing on the acre of land at 4905 NE Going St. We have recently purchased the lot from Nathan and Maureen Stewart. We would like to invite interested neighbors to an informational meeting about our goals and intentions for the property.
We will welcome your questions, feedback, and look forward to having a constructive conversation.
The CAN Transportation and Land use Committee will meet on
Tuesday, November 15, 7:00 PM, at the Cully Grove common house, 4779 NE Going Street.
We will meet with Paul Del Vecchio who is planning a new development at 42nd and Portland Highway.
Some of the particulars are below. If you have other items for the agenda, let me know.
We shall also talk about the Nov 16th Residential infill meeting and what effect that could have on our neighborhood.

Laura & David, I hope you had a great weekend. I’m reaching out to let you know that you will be receiving a certified letter notifying you of an impending Planned Development application for a parcel on 42nd and Lombard. The letter is rather sterile and I wanted to reach out personally in advance. I’ll give you an idea of what we are planning, however I would love to get together in person with you and whomever else is interested to discuss the plan.
Our plan includes 22 two-bedroom rental units in the ~900 SF range: 16 units in a two-story building configuration, 5 townhomes, and 1 renovated existing house. The plan is to create larger units at accessible pricing in a family oriented garden setting. We will have a children’s play area, community gardens, and the building’s common area power consumption will be offset with onsite solar.
The reason we are seeking a zoning adjustment via the Planned Development process is that part of the lot is currently zoned R10 (but planned for R5) and the rest is R2. The context of the immediate area slants towards multifamily dwelling and we wanted to blend the density around the site rather than have it concentrated on Lombard. We are not asking for more units, we are just asking to redistribute the density. I’ve included a plan so you can see what we are envisioning.
A little about me: I am relatively new to developing on my own account, but have worked in the industry for my entire career. I am working on two other projects in NE, one in Beaumont Village and one in Roseway. You can see some details on both of them at the link below.
I look forward to connecting with you in person and have a great week.
