ASHWAUBENON – A site plan to redevelop the southwest corner of South Oneida Street and Cormier Road with two new buildings was approved earlier this month by the of the village Site plan review committee.
Community Development Director Aaron Schuette said the plan for the property owned by ENDF3DK calls for the demolition of existing buildings on the site of the former Huntington Bank and Oreck Vacuum / Big & Tall Clothiers to build a Mission BBQ restaurant from 3,678 square feet on the corner and a one or two unit 6,057 square foot rental property on the south.
“(There are) no plans or no tenant reservations at this time (for the south building),” he said. “They have the interest of other retailers, but nothing has been confirmed yet.”
Schuette said the number of access points will be reduced to two, with an entry / exit fee on Oneida Street, which will be connected to a drive-thru for the south building, with full access to the property off Cormier Road.
“Drive-thru is consistent with the other drive-thru we currently have on Oneida Street, where drive-thru loops around the front and is allowed under our code,” he said. .
Schuette said the exterior materials for both buildings will consist of a mixture of brick, wood and an exterior insulation finish system.
He said the green space for the site will decrease from 9.4% to 16.7%, while a 6-foot opaque fence will be located on the south side of Mission BBQ to filter the smoker and the staging area.
Townhouses at Aldon Station
The committee also approved a site plan for 16 two-story single-family townhouses without a lot line in the Aldon Station subdivision, on the former Schneider trucking site along South Broadway.
Schuette said the townhouses are in groups of four, each having an individual entrance, patio / balcony, an attached two-stall garage, basement, two to three bedrooms and bathrooms.
“It will be a good change or an addition to the housing stock in the village,” he said.
Schuette said the debugging zones built across the street and the right-of-way will provide overflow parking.
Ryan Radue of Radue Homes, who is behind the development, said work will begin soon on the townhouses and one of the condominiums.
The village secured the old Schneider property by purchasing two plots of over 20 acres for $ 1.25 million.
He made a deal with Radue Homes for the company to buy lots in the development until 2026.
The agreement provides for the purchase of 38 duplex lots, 16 townhouse lots and five condominium building lots.
The lots Radue Homes will pay vary in terms of cost under the agreement, ranging from $ 20,000 for the cheapest duplex lot to $ 450,000 for a waterfront condominium lot.
Bay Bank Awning
Bay Bank at 2555 Packerland Dr. has received committee approval for a new glass roof covering the main entrance to the bank.
Schuette said the existing canopy will be removed and replaced with the new one.
He said the new canopy requires committee approval as it is a commercial building with a required building permit.
