The Camas Scheduling Fee has signed off on preliminary strategies for a just about 943,000-square-foot industrial business park alongside Northwest Lake Highway.
The proposal would assemble two warehouse properties and one particular producing developing on 74.06 acres at 4707 and 4723 N.W. Lake Road, across from the WaferTech campus. It won unanimous aid from the scheduling commission and was scheduled for review Monday by the Camas Metropolis Council, which must deliver closing acceptance.
The applicant, Panattoni Advancement Co., specializes in industrial and office environment growth, with above 2,500 clientele, which includes FedEx, Home Depot, Bridgestone, Tesco, PetSmart, Unilever and HP. The company has made a lot more than 544 million sq. feet of space.
A specific firm has not been discovered for the warehouse structures, according to metropolis employees.
The challenge would very likely be designed in three phases, Camas Senior Planner Lauren Hollenbeck explained. The initially period would consist of a 722,397-square-foot warehouse setting up on the property’s southern good deal, as well as all roadways and utilities. A 2nd period would construct a smaller sized, 127,191-square-foot warehouse constructing on the northern lot. A third period would see a 93,351-square-foot construction described as a producing setting up in the city’s targeted visitors assessment for the southern lot.
Hollenbeck reported the enterprise park would have entry points alongside a independent driveway off Northwest Lake Highway as properly as from the north via Northwest Camas Meadows Generate.
The web-site is at present made use of as pasture, with scattered forested regions and 4 wetlands on the northern 50 % of the property. The builders strategy to retain 3 of the wetlands, Hollenbeck advised the setting up commission, but would fill a “low-operating wetland exempt from buffer polices thanks to its isolated site and compact size.”
The challenge also would retain a 50-inch Oregon white oak tree inside just one of the wetlands — the only white oak with a diameter breast peak of in excess of 20 inches, in accordance to the applicant’s arborist survey. Developers approach to keep 476 trees and include 837 in landscaping. Below the city’s urban tree system authorised in 2018, the developers will will need to have 1,434 trees to meet up with the city’s necessity of 20 tree units for each net acre.
A traffic effects investigation geared up for the candidates in November 2021 by Heath & Associates Inc. demonstrates the company park would most likely deliver 1,656 normal weekday every day excursions.
Builders will add a new road alongside the eastern edge of the website, to give a north-south relationship in between Lake Street and Camas Meadows Drive, and a new east-west street by the centre of the web page that could sometime link to long term improvement west of the organization park.
