Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

All very valid points, Maine is in a difficult position when it comes to attracting larger companies, but Portland is a bit of a special case compared to the rest of the state. There is quite an...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

What Portland really needs is to lure a NEW big company to set up shop. With existing global companies that are in the midst of expanding, and high quality of life. It isn't too unrealistic to assume...

Saw that just a few minutes after I posted here :p

There is quite a substantial amount of office space going in along the eastern waterfront. With two big companies now in the neighborhood (WEX...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Anyone know what's going on with the WestElm hotel at Portland Foreside? their website still says "coming in 2020" but if they aim to hit that goal they would already need to be going through the...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Based on the massing and shadows from the top-down rendering, I would guess that the"development by others" are in the 5-6 story range,

As far as I know, the parcel bordered by Spring, Cotton and...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

I'm getting legitimately concerned about the ridiculous oversaturation of hotels in Portland. There's no way that the city can sustain this many rooms for a long period of time. There are going to be...

Re: Rock Row (née The Ridge, née Dirigo Plaza) | Westbrook, ME

Waterstone is seeking tenants for the beer hall / food hall portion of the project, which they hope to have ready to go by 2021. A new MaineBiz article states that they want to have a full build out...

Re: Thompson's Point, Portland

I believe the garage is being built alongside the NNEPRA platform project at the PTC, with a walkway over the tracks connecting the garage to the transportation center, that's my understanding anyway...

Re: Rock Row (née The Ridge, née Dirigo Plaza) | Westbrook, ME

Maine DoT did rebuild a few miles of the mountain division in Westbrook / Windham a few years ago for a potential freight customer that never came to fruition. That line is perfect for a DMU / light...

Re: Rock Row (née The Ridge, née Dirigo Plaza) | Westbrook, ME

DO I see a train station along the mountain division RoW?

I'm really impressed with how this design has evolved from generic suburban retail to this. As Portlander said I hope it doesn't derail...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

I might be a bit pessimistic / cynical, but I highly doubt anything will actually get built even we get renderings and site plans.

It's fairly likely that the country will enter another economic...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Portland really does have a ridiculous number of garages for a city of its size, and more proposed or under construction. It doesn't make for good land use especially in such a valuable neighborhood....

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

I feel like I've been hearing this for years but whoever owns those lots must know that they're sitting on a goldmine. The land is too valuable to stay a parking lot forever.

I don't know if...

Anyone know more about the "rumors" floating around about Portland Square?? Feels like that's been a rumor for years but is there something more concrete now?

Absolutely agree. In fact i've heard that Mason block is having difficulty selling some units BECAUSE of the utility wires.

Re: The Ridge (former Dirigo Plaza), Westbrook, ME

I just can't imagine how there would ever be enough demand to justify two large office buildings, especially in Portland's suburban environment.

Re: The Ridge (former Dirigo Plaza), Westbrook, ME

This project just keeps getting scaled up. I don't know if these renderings are really indicative of the final master plan but I'm liking those 8-10 story buildings.

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Seems like their minimum parking requirements would make anywhere on the peninsula basically impossible. I also don't fully understand why they can't be near railroad tracks, seems to be no reason...
