North Bend Developing: Phoenix Plaza to Rise on Explosion Site, Tannerwood to Grow

The City of North Bend put out a couple of public notices in mid April, giving residents more information about new business and residential developments on tap in the near future.

Phoenix Plaza

Two years after a powerful natural gas explosion destroyed multiple businesses along North Bend Way, a new building is closer to reality.

Glenn Wells Architect is proposing a three-story, residential and commercial mixed use building for the former explosion site.

The ground floor would have a 1,300 square foot leasing office, 3,900 feet of retail space and a parking lot that includes 39 covered parking spots.  The second and third floors would have 32 apartments and about 2,000 feet of private open space on the second floor terrace for tenants.

There will also be a pedestrian plaza adjacent the city sidewalk with outdoor picnic seating, park benches, covered bike stalls, a trellis and pedestrian lighting.

The City of North Bend worked with the developer to improve the entrance to Torguson Park, located in an easement on the back of the property – and plans include a pedestrian pathway connecting North Bend Way to Torguson Park.

Below is a conceptual elevation design for Phoenix Plaza.  City of North Bend Associate Lynn Hyde cautioned that the plans are still under review and may change – and have not been approved by the city yet.  She did not yet have a timeline as to when the approval and construction might happen.

Tanner Falls

John Day Homes is getting closer to starting work on its newest North Bend residential community. The plan includes developing and subdividing just over 14 acres into 48 detached single family home lots on the old rock quarry located on SE 140th Street near Twin Falls Middle School.

The new development will connect to the existing Tannerwood neighborhood and have parks and open space. Site work on the land (and old rock quarry) has been happening for the past year. Last year John Day Homes also made improvements to 140th to make it safer for drivers and pedestrians as large trucks continually entered the site.
