|A quarter block of addresses with demolition permits|

The land is zoned RM2, and this suggests that a modest apartment development is more likely than new detached homes - though I suppose it could be a tear-down for a single grander house. Because of the substation and proximity to Willamette, this seems unlikely, however.

Some kinds of commercial uses are also permitted, but it seems like the most likely thing would be a small apartment block serving mostly students and such.
And that's the kind of thing that could be terrific or terrible here - so much depends on the design.
These houses aren't historic or anything, and it's a part of town that should be able to handle modest increases in density. It will be interesting to see if there is a substantive critique of whatever is in the works.
