Townhouse plan at old Cloverdale Mall site moves ahead

City council gave its initial nod to a 112-unit townhouse proposal on the site of the old Cloverdale Mall on Monday night (Oct. 24).

Mosaic’s revised plan calls for 112 townhomes for its proposed development at 17555 and 17568 57A Avenue

CLOVERDALE — City council gave its initial nod to a 112-unit townhouse proposal on the site of the old Cloverdale Mall on Monday night (Oct. 24).

The requested Development Variance Permit will now proceed to public notification, allowing residents time to provide comments before it is given final consideration at a later meeting. No public hearing is required for the application.

This comes after city council sent the application back to staff on Sept. 12 for the developer, Mosaic, to address concerns regarding the absence of an indoor amenity building for the then-114-unit townhouse proposal, as well as concern with sufficient parking related to the proposed “loft-style” units.

The developer has come back with a revised plan that includes 112 townhouses on the four-acre property at 17568 and 17555 57A Ave. Mosaic has met the required number of on-site parking spaces and the proposal now includes a 737-square-foot amenity building. The loft-style units have been replaced with double-car-garage units with side-by-side parking.

The project requires an amendment to the Cloverdale Town Centre Plan.

Both the Cloverdale Community Association (CCA) and Cloverdale BIA are in support of the revised plan.

BIA president Dean Moore wrote a letter to city council outlining its support, but said the group “continues to have concerns about the off-street parking inventory in Cloverdale west of 176th St., especially in light of new development and parking variances that have already been given to TownLine and a new retail development at 5791 176th St.”

Mike Bola of the CCA said Mosaic, which hopes to have the townhouses completed by December 2017, has been “flexible and understanding” in working with the community on this application.

A report to council notes the development should play a “vital role in helping encourage further redevelopment and stimulate business in the Cloverdale Town Centre area.”

The dilapidated Cloverdale Mall was torn down in 2011.
