SteelCraft project goes before planners

A CONCEPTUAL DRAWING of the Steelcraft Garden Grove project on Euclid Street in the downtown-civic center area being considered by the city planning commission on Thursday, Nov. 16.

A key component in the plans for making the city’s downtown and civic center areas a more fashionable place to visit and dine will go before the Garden Grove Planning Commission when it meets on Thursday, Nov. 16.

Planners will consider a request for a site plan, variance and conditional use permit for an outdoor urban eatery at 12900 Euclid St. (between Acacia Parkway and Garden Grove Boulevard).

The project – second of its kind in southern California – would be a 9,532-square foot, two-story building on a site once occupied by a Black Angus restaurant. SteelCraft Long Beach LP is proposing to construct the facility primarily out of recycled and repurposed metal shipping containers.

This SteelCraft Garden Grove location is expected to include space for local artisan food vendors and outdoor communal dining areas, entertainment, “incubator” office space and micro-retail office space on a 1.86-acre site.

It’s expected to house about 14 businesses, making it larger than the original location in Long Beach. The list of potential clients include craft food and dessert eateries, a coffee shop, a craft micro-brewery and taproom and a craft wine vendor. In addition, the project will include a 1,588-square foot garden area.

The dining areas would be in the center on the first floor, at the front facing Euclid Street and on the second floor. Hours for the project are expected to be from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, with hours of 6 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday.

The commission meets at 7 p.m. in the council chambers in the Community Meeting Center, 11300 Stanford Ave.
