Fairview mulls trio of developers to create 'Heart' of city
The city of Fairview is mulling a trio of developers to create the "Heart of Fairview" on a 5-acre property at the corner of Halsey and Village Streets.
The idea behind the project is to create a vibrant heart of the community with a grand market hall, mix of retail and food establishments, public gathering spaces and more. The project will also tie into the ongoing "Main Streets on Halsey" plan being crafted alongside the cities of Wood Village and Troutdale, as well as connect the Halsey corridor to Fairview Village and Historic Fairview.
Three development teams have submitted to be considered for the endeavor — Atkins Dame; Fairview Collaborative, LLC; and Project^.
Atkins Dame proposed a central "maker" space with a plaza that would support temporary food trucks and other pop-up vendors. They discuss an outdoor amphitheater for concerts and other performances, residential units and green spaces.
Fairview Collaborative, LLC, suggests a central market hall/brew pub; shops and cafes; an athletic and daycare facility; and residential mixed-uses buildings.
Project^ proposes a dynamic mix of indoor/outdoor amenities, with food and beverage, residential units, open spaces and pedestrian connections.
A citizen panel of seven community members will weigh the proposals and provide feedback so City Council can make a final decision.
