Tigard planning major new building on Main Street
Office building could rise above Pacific Highway as tallest building in downtown
Main Street is about to get a major new addition.
Tigard city planners are currently designing a new six-story multi-use office building which is slated to be built on Southwest Main Street, across from Max’s Fanno Creek Brew Pub.
Known as the Saxony Project, the building at 12533 S.W. Main St. would be torn down and rebuilt as a large scale office building with retail space on the bottom floor.
Locals chafe as councilors discuss downtown parking concerns with proposed tall building
Woodard expressed concern about the potential parking impact from a building of that size on other downtown businesses, such as Max's Fanno Creek Brew Pub, a popular restaurant and microbrewery across Main Street from the Saxony site.
“I think one of the biggest concerns I heard is that their customers won't have any place to park,” Woodard said, adding, “I just want to make sure everybody's talking, because it has potential to knock a smaller business out of business. … I'm OK with it in concept. I'm still worried about the parking.”
