Coronado Park FAQ
With the number of residences you are building at Coronado Park, I’m concerned about the increased traffic in the area, how will the addition of cars at your development affect Eagle River?
A traffic impact analysis (TIA) was done and the site was approved for 220 units of housing. The TIA concluded that the Old Glenn Highway would not be over capacity with the addition of Coronado Park. It was recommended that a sidewalk be extended from the development to Business Boulevard. Since this initial approval, we have reduced the number of planned units by 31.
Will emergency vehicles be able to easily and quickly access your new neighborhood?
The road work for Coronado Park was designed and constructed to meet all current code requirements, including fire and traffic. It is a private road, designed to meet public road standards to accommodate two-way traffic, with parking along one side and 5 foot wide sidewalks on both sides.
I thought buildings could only be three stories tall in Eagle River, how can you build a four story building?
As part of the Eagle River Downtown Overlay District there is a two tiered height limit that allows for buildings with up to four stories. This two tiered height limit applies to the Coronado Park site, allowing for a mix of heights on the site. The row of lots adjacent to Lower Sunny Circle is restricted to buildings up to three stories.
Building a taller building makes the construction of our senior housing building more cost effective and allows for an “elevatored” building. Keeping construction costs down will ultimately result in more affordable rent rates for seniors living on a fixed income. The building is 3 stories along Coronado Street and 4 stories on the interior of the site, employing articulation and a mix of materials and colors to break up the massing of the building.
Who is responsible for maintaining the roads and sidewalks?
The 56-unit senior development is accessed directly from Coronado Street. The balance of the site is a private road that is owned and maintained by the Coronado Park Planned Community, a homeowner association.
