At 1:30pm on January 9th the design commission will review initial plans submitted by Killian Pacific and Ankrom Moisan Architects, Inc. for development at the "goat blocks*" at SE 11th and Belmont.
Plans call for 257 apartments, with one level each of underground and above ground parking and are 84,000 square feet of retail space. The buildings will be up to seven stories tall.
*Why is it called the goat blocks? Three years ago, Killian Pacific brought in 50 goats to keep the grass mowed between SE 10th and SE 11th and Belmont.
Word has it they're still there.
Meanwhile, an additional 62-units is already under construction in the Pearl District at the eight-story community dubbed The Janey.
