Restaurant, apartment building to rise on Martin Way


UPDATE: The Olympia Site Plan Review Committee yesterday approved the land use for a project proposal of a three-story building with a restaurant and housing units at 4336 Martin Way E.  (See related story.)

Olympia associate planner Jackson Ewing reminded project applicant and business owner Eric Dickerson of the conditions entailed in the approval.

The project would turn an 18,163 sq. ft. residential property at 4336 Martin Way E into a three-story mixed-use building.

Ewing presented 14 conditions for the project, including the design review, engineering details, building construction, landscaping, parking, solid waste pickup, and access and sidewalk improvements.

The building will have a restaurant on the ground floor and seven apartments on the second and third floors.

Among the conditions discussed is that the existing addresses 4336 and 4340 Martin Way E will be retired by the time of demolition. Ewing said the new proposed address, 4338 Martin Way E, will be assigned to the commercial space and the residential units at the time of building permit.

According to Ewing, the other condition is about hours of operation and construction, which should be only between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.

According to Ewing, the approved plan provides 22 vehicle parking spaces. The proposed parking must meet vehicle parking design standards, including bicycle parking – eight long-term bicycle storage spaces and four short-term bicycle parking spaces are required.

The review committee has a specific condition for stormwater. "We will look for offsite analysis of the property to the west [parcel] to determine if the proposed curbing will cause standing water offsite. We are looking for that to be addressed and provide us the Drainage Design Report," Ewing said.

The committee members unanimously approved the Dickerson mixed-use project.

Principal planner Nicole Floyd said the applicant can now move forward with building and engineering permits.
