Langer property approved for big-box store

Rumors are that either a Walmart or Fred Meyer store is the likely anchor for the site


by: COURTESY OF CITY OF SHERWOOD - Here's an architectural drawing of the layout for a planned new shopping complex along along Langer Farms Parkway The Sherwood Planning Commission has approved a conditional use permit allowing for the construction of a 19.7 acre shopping center along Langer Farms Parkway.

The commission unanimously approved the site plan to construct a 145,000-square-foot anchor building along with six retail buildings with parking and landscaping. In all, the shopping complex will include 189,500 square feet of commercial space.

Among the issues discussed by commissioners before the approval was whether traffic studies were adequate regarding the ability of the complex to handle a large number of cars if a box store such as Fred Meyer or Walmart were to build at the site. They also wanted to know about plans regarding the county’s plan to widen Tualatin-Sherwood Road in the future and how that would affect the new shopping center.

During comments, Commissioner Michael Cary said while he was approving the measure, “it would be nice to know what the tenant is.”

Matt Langer, a representative for Langer Family LLC, and a member of the Sherwood City Council, recently said an announcement of the anchor store and other tenants will be made soon.
