According to tonight’s KGW news story, the city council meeting pitting the neighborhood against the developer resulted in a win for the neighborhood. The Uptown Shopping Center, recently home to Elephant’s Deli and current home to Ben & Jerry’s, Uptown Hardware and a host of others is slated to have the complex built behind it. The proposed plan had a 14 story condo tower and a 4.5 story townhouse complex on the current site.
The plan “Does not mesh with the neighborhood’s historic character.”
The city council ordered a redesign “that meets the approval of both sides.”
