The building that is planned for downtown Eagle Point.

Gary Whittle submitted an application for a master site plan to the Eagle Point Planning Commission last week for a two story, mixed use structure at the corner of Main and Platt. It would replace the building currently there. As remodeling was underway at Sweet Cafe, it was determined the structure was not suited for major renovation.
Whittle is seeking a structure including 3,919 sq. ft. of commercial space on the first floor and 3,218 sq. ft. of residential living space on the second floor. The structure will encompass the vacant field between the current building and Barbed Wire Café.
No timeline has been given for demolition and construction of the new building although earlier Whittle said he hoped to have approvals in order to take building down sometime this summer and perhaps start construction in the fall. But, that is not definite. One complete, Sweet Café will be the key tenant with the corner location, according to the plans.
The accompanying drawings are based on a structure the developer saw in Canada. He asked the planning commission for their opinion on the design as well as the colors. If you would like to comment on them, you may email your thoughts to or fax 826-1340 and we will see that he receives the public input.
