Downtown's third 7-Eleven appears headed for the 9th street side of this building at 9th and Broadway.

Downtown's third 7-Eleven appears to be headed for a former Payless shoe store at 9th and Broadway.

A mailing went out this week alerting nearby residents and business owners to a hearing on the convenience chain's proposed permit to sell alcohol. That application was filed on April 14, and will be heard on Wednesday, July 7.

The new store at 124 W. 9th will occupy 2,815 square feet on the ground floor of the three-story building on the southeast corner of the intersection. 24-hour operation is proposed, with alcohol sales between 6am and 2am.

Franchisee Matt Mattu last summer told the neighbhorhood council's planning committee that he holds an option to open four more stores Downtown. His first opened at 7th and Olive in 2007, followed by a store at 5th and Broadway that opened in September of 2009.

Across the street from the new store are the Eastern Columbia building's 147 condos, soon to be joined by 82 rental units in the Blackstone Lofts.
