Re: Portland Bayside

The buildings on each end should be at least 10 to 12 stories high. I still can't believe this is what they are settling for. It looks similar to most of the buildings that have gone up in Portland...

Re: Portland Bayside

Very, very disappointing. I agree they should stagger the heights of the buildings and should have required one of the buildings to be at least 12 stories. Hard to believe that pack of idiots would...

Re: Portland Bayside

I am guessing that the developer will eventually get fed up with the b.s. and walk away from the project. I hope I am wrong.

Yeh, 6 homes games and 6 away plus playoffs. Starting in September and ending in December. An AhL team could easily work around that schedule.
