Project Overview

The site, located at 311 Mapleton, will have 93 independent living units, 12 units without kitchens.

Several historic sites on the property will be landmarked, including: the 1930s nurses’ dormitory, the 1920s white duplex cottage, the 1940s stone duplex cottage, the 1920s stone retaining wall along Mapleton Avenue, and the 1920s smokestack.

Existing trails will be maintained including a portion of the Dakota Ridge Trail that crosses the northwest corner of the site, as well as an existing maintenance and social trail adjacent to the Silver Lake Ditch on the western edge of the property.

Other aspects of the project plan can be found in the staff memo to City Council.

Project Approval

City Council approved the project on July 17, 2018.

Next Steps

City staff is currently reviewing technical documents (TEC docs), which are pre-building permit plans that provide technical details and construction-level plans for the project. Following their approval, the applicant will submit applications for building permits.

Current project materials

Site Demolition Plans, Overlot Grading, Erosion Control

TEC2018-00078

This Technical Document Review application is for pre-construction site preparation including demolition of non-historic structures, overlot grading, and the management of storm water while the work is being performed. The intended result is a clear and stable hillside with erosion control facilities in place to prepare the site for the next sequence of construction. Note that building demolition applications for buildings over 50 years old will be reviewed under a separate application by the Historic Preservation program to determine whether the buildings are potentially eligible for landmark designation.
