Developing Story

A plan has been submitted to rezone the small triangular parcel along Division Street for a new mixed-use development. The parcel is situated in the heart of major redevelopment in the South Gulch Sub-district. Located on the western end of the Division Street bridge, the property sits directly across from the 20-story mixed use tower, Albion In The Gulch and the recently completed Haven At The Gulch. The property address is 630 Division Street.

The property sold in 2019 for $228,901 and again in 2021 for $650,000. It also represents only 1 of 3 remaining parcels that make up the land bordered between 8th Avenue S and Division Street. Most of the land is owned by developer SomeraRoad and will become part of the larger Paseo South Gulch mixed use district. The other two parcels are located next to one another. The site closest to Division Street is owned by Albion while the other is owned by the entity Fogg Street Partnership.

A request has been submitted to rezone the property from DTC to SP zoning.   The SP Zoning would include all permitted uses under the DTC zoning classification within the Gulch South Subdistrict. Once approved, the request will permit the mixed-use development on the 0.09 acre site.  The request was submitted by Chisel Workshop on behalf of the property owners.  Here’s the quick rundown:
