Eagle Rock project picks up support

Plans to build a three-story office and condo project near the Eagle Rock Baptist church have picked up speed and support. The nearly 38,000-square-foot building at the northwest corner of Colorado Boulevard and Hartwick Street would include five commercial spaces below eight, two-story condominiums.  Some residents on Hartwick had expressed concern about the increase in traffic and demand for street parking the new development would bring.  However, the project, which would replace a cluster of one-story homes and buildings, has won the blessing of the Eagle Rock Association and Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council’s Land Use & Planning Committee.  “The project will represent an improvement in the appearance of this corner,” the The Eagle Rock Assn. said in an email.

The project had some residents looking forward to the arrival of new shops. However, the ground floor spaces cannot be used for stores and will most likely be occupied as office space, according to the Boulevard Sentinel.

  1. Excellent, this is what should be encouraged on Colorado and Eagle Rock Blvds.

  2. Only problem I see is that this property is surrounded by empty offices — across, down, and up the street there are commercial “for lease” signs everywhere. Who’s going to move in? (The only thriving office-based businesses in ER are pot shops, it seems.) If rents are cheap and the units attractive enough, maybe some interesting independent businesses will move in.
