Press Release

Carrington Vigo Street Commercial Development

The Carrington Vigo Street Commercial Development Project would demolish an existing vacant, 9,000 sf, two-story wooden commercial building, and construct two new commercial buildings, pave a portion of the gravel lot, repave existing paved areas, construct stormwater infrastructure and utility improvements, and install buffers, lighting, landscaping, and signage. The existing property line between the two parcels will be relocated easterly through a Lot Line Adjustment.

Two commercial buildings will be constructed, one on each resultant parcel. One building will be located near the northeast corner of the site at the intersection of Vigo Street and Broadway, and will house a fast food restaurant. The building will consist of approximately 3,867 square feet of enclosed space, along with approximately 1,000 square feet of outdoor area that will be utilized for seating, a separate trash enclosure, and a drive-through around the eastern and northern sides of the building.

The second building will be an 8,400 square foot structure divided into four different retail spaces, which will then be rented out to tenants to include fast-casual restaurants and/or retail uses. The two retail spaces on the north and south end of the building will each be 2,500 square feet. A second drive-through is also planned for use by the south tenant space. The two middle retail spaces will each be 1,700 square feet. A second trash enclosure will be included in the southwestern portion of the site. The north and south tenants will also have 375 square feet and 575 square feet respectively, of outdoor seating.

A buffer area, enhanced with native plantings, is proposed to provide appropriate setback and protection for the adjacent ESHA located to the west and southwesterly edges of the site. Development from delineated onsite wetlands will be offset by equal to, or greater than 50 feet and will include improvement of the wetland buffer area by planting with native vegetation.
