Document Description
Generally, the proposed project includes the redevelopment of the on-site shopping center. Initial work involves demolition of the existing building housing the Safeway grocery store and vacant CVS pharmacy, the car wash and antique restoration store buildings located within the western portion of the site, and a portion of the existing building housing the former O'Reilly Wheel Works and Pizza Hut. The existing China Delight restaurant building, the dry cleaner/fitness studio/seafood and barbecue restaurant/former Chase Bank buildings located within the eastern portion of the site would remain. The proposed project would result in a net increase of 11 ,956 sf of commercial building space relative to existing conditions. The new Safeway grocery store would total 55,044 sf and would include a pharmacy, cafe, deli, bakery, and other typical grocery store features. Loading dock space would be provided at the south side of the building, facing away from the proposed parking areas. A total of 25,045 sf of commercial space capable of accommodating approximately seven separate tenants and one junior anchor tenant would be provided to the east of the Safeway building. Combined, the buildings would total 80,089 sf, a modest increase relative to the 63,584 sf of building space currently located in the southern portion of the site. The Safeway gas station, to be located within the northern portion of the site, would include a total of 16 fueling stations. Two new 30,000-gallon underground fuel storage tanks would be installed to the east of the fueling stations. The associated Safeway kiosk would include 1,100 sf and would provide convenience items for gas station patrons. The proposed drive-through restaurant building would also be located within the northern portion of the site and would include a total of 3,005 sf. An illuminated menu display and associated speaker/intercom order station would be provided along the drive-through aisle at the north side of the building, adjacent to Tara Hills Drive. The payment and pickup window(s) would be located at the west side of the building. Consistent with Section 17.040.040(0) of the City's Municipal Code, the drive-up windows and order stations would be located over 300 feet from the nearest residential property line.
