Project Update – December 23, 2021
In December 2021, the City Council acting in capacity as the Lake Oswego Redevelopment Agency (LORA) Board unanimously approved the Disposition and Development Agreement for the sale and redevelopment of the North Anchor properties with Urban Development + Partners (UDP). UDP is a real estate develop, investment, and property management firm based in Portland.
The approval of this public-private partnership is a major milestone towards redevelopment of the LORA-owned parcels at First Street and B Avenue. UDP is proposing to develop a 77-room boutique hotel and associated restaurant and 66 apartments with 5,700 square feet of ground floor retail.
The community as a whole will benefit from the redevelopment of the under-utilized properties in the downtown core by the addition of major streetscape improvements; additional housing options; direct and indirect jobs created; and the economic benefits related to the commercial development, new housing and boutique hotel. The development will enhance the pedestrian-friendly downtown and complement the “South Anchors” of Lake View Village, the Windward and Millennium Plaza Park.
The project is anticipated to break ground by fall 2022 and be completed by late 2024.
