Large entertainment/fun center planned for Langer Farms Parkway
(Editor's note: This updates a previous story, noting a date change for the Sherwood Planning Commission to hear this issue and hold a public hearing.)
A land-use application for a five-lot subdivision on the southeast intersection of Langer Farms Parkway and Century Drive includes plans for an almost 100,000-square-foot entertainment and recreation fun center.
Langer Family LLC has applied to build the 92,899-square-foot center at what will be known as Parkway Village South, just south of the current Parkway Village at Sherwood (which contains the Walmart Superstore).
In addition, the new complex will contain 32,408 square feet of retail space along with plans to build a 392-square-foot drive-thru coffee kiosk.
The area is zoned for light industrial use, or more specifically, planned unit development light industrial use dating from the 1995 code that then permitted retail use as well.
The proposed lots range in size from one-half acre to 8.24 acres, according to the application.
Plans are to have both off-street parking to accommodate 487 parking spaces along with 56 bike spaces. In addition, 267 trees are expected to be planted.
Matt Langer, spokesman for Langer Family LLC, said no retailers have yet been determined for the site and the fun center provider has not yet been named.
Other large local entertainment complexes include Family Fun Center and Bullwinkle's Restaurant in Wilsonville, Big Al's (66,000 square feet) in Beaverton and John's Incredible Pizza Company (48,000 square feet), also in Beaverton.
Meanwhile, to the south of the entertainment complex, construction is underway for an expansion of Sentinel Self-Storage. The 108,000-square-foot facility will contain more than 500 units on six acres of land, said Langer.
Buildings will be completed one at a time with a full completion date set for spring 2018.
The Planning Commission meeting will be held at 7 p.m. in the Sherwood City Council chambers at Sherwood City Hall.
