Development Update – Wash Me Car Wash 4159 Hiawatha Ave – Redevelopment

Proposed Development: 

Remove existing self-service car wash structure and construct a new 1-story office/retail continuous structure fronting Hiawatha Avenue and East 42nd Street.  This structure would contain office space and a sit-down restaurant.  Behind this L-shaped structure would be a separate Starbucks coffee shop with a drive-thru pick-up window.  There would be 18 on-site vehicle parking spaces, including 2 electric vehicle charging stations, and racks for 16 bicycles.  The project is specifically architecturally designed – and footings, foundations, columns and beams will be structurally engineered – to support up to 9 additional floors to accommodate the potential for future residential expansion.  The projects seeks no variances or alternative compliances, however a public hearing will be held regarding a site plan review on a TBD date.
