            A few years ago the Kodiak City Council authorized the sale of a plot of land on Near Island to Paul Zimmer and Tia Leber. While no construction has taken place since then, there has been a lot of development, and now the couple is looking for tenants in what is going to be the Dog Bay Commercial Building.


            Zimmer put up a web site with preliminary designs for the building, which will be on the corner at the bottom of Dog Salmon Bay Road.

 

--          (Dog Bay 1                 34 sec              "We're at a stage now ... for a builder to build it.")

 

            He said he and Leber have spent a lot of time at the site, trying to determine how best to situate the building on the lot in relation to the sun and the view.

 

--          (Dog Bay 2                 30 sec              "It seems a lot of real estate ... good, useful function.")

 

            Zimmer says the floor plan that is shown on building's website is preliminary and flexible, but he believes a coffee shop or café will definitely be part of the design:

 

--          (Dog Bay 3                 29 sec              "The other appropriate uses ..., a good atmosphere.")

 

            He says the Dog Bay Commercial Building, along with the KANA-Koniag building just up the road, will bring some much needed development to a largely ignored part of town.

 

--          (Dog Bay 4                 22 sec              "For an area that is such a big ... community space there.")

 

            Zimmer says they had hoped to break ground later this year, but thinks that might be a little too ambitious, and will instead shoot for about a year from now. He expects construction to take nine-months or more, with it opening perhaps this time in 2012.
