Big downtown Port Angeles condo-retail project detailed

PORT ANGELES – Details of a $30 million development on Oak Street were given to the Planning Commission this week.

The project – the Black Diamond Harbor Plaza – would include more than 100 condominiums, retail space, a restaurant and underground parking on 1.9-acres at the northwest corner of Front and Oak streets.

It would be built in three phases over three years, depending upon market conditions.

It also would include rerouting the Waterfront Trail from city sidewalks to an area north of the project along the shoreline.

The project complies with the city’s zoning code for downtown, Associate Planner Scott Johns told the planning commission Wednesday night.

So the board’s only task was approval of the shoreline substantial development permit for the 20 percent of the project that will sit within 200 feet of the shoreline, he said.

The permit was unanimously approved.

But the meeting gave the public its best opportunity yet to see plans for the site that Harry Dorssers purchased from the Port of Port Angeles in September.
