Neighbors Object
At the Summer 2015 Wilkes East Neighborhood Association meeting, August 24th, Craig Smith with SGS Development LLC (a Bend-based company owned by developer Chet Antonsen that has built several projects in East Multnomah County), presented plans for construction of new 64-unit 4-story 2-building apartment homes at 165th & NE Halsey St.
During the presentation several neighbors raised concerns about the project. Among the main concerns was the number of parking spaces, ingress/egress to the property, building height, 55-and-older vs family tenants, play area size, impact on schools, and a possible wetland.
Addressing Concerns
Over the next several weeks SGS Development explored ways to address the neighbor’s concerns including reducing the building height to 2 or 3-story buildings and spreading out the buildings across the entire site. Based on comments raised at the August meeting a wetlands specialist was retained to study the proposed site. His findings supported the existence of a wetland area on the north portion of the property. A 15' buffer will now separate the wetlands from the project leaving this habitat area undisturbed.
