Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Would be great to finally get some activity in the Schwartz Building and there has been interest and missed opportunities as mentioned. Heard that the owner is eccentric and not the easiest to deal...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

The office building is more impressive than I thought it was going to be. Stunning makeover of the area bounded by Newbury, Mountfort, Thames and India Streets. I dubbed this part of Portland as...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Maybe corporate/administrative needs could be located downtown at the Top of Old Port property or the Portland Square parcels. Development/lab/distribution could be located at the Portland...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Still think the fenced in private little park is lame and will be stark and empty during winter months. The building"s best profile is from Franklin Street and I would have preferred a few more...

Re: Jetport

Cosakita, don't forget JetBlue's E190 and Delta's MD 88/90 mainline aircraft. Where did you find the CY 2017 emplacements for PWM and MHT? The FAA normally doesn't release the official numbers...

Re: Jetport

^ A renovation project to improve the lower level prior to baggage claim will remove the current escalator and add a new one further west to shorten the route from the upper concourse. Sorry, people...

Re: Jetport

I agree, and Manchester has seen 11 consecutive years of declining enplanemensts. I think Frontier may be profitable because they chose new markets that do not currently compete with PWM's already...

Re: MY TOP 15 NEW ENGLAND CITIES

Interesting perspective and refreshing to hear. Not in my nature to go against accolades involving my hometown and Portland has had it's share of them during the past two decades. And bro, I do...

Re: MY TOP 15 NEW ENGLAND CITIES

As big of a fan as I am of Portland, I think it has a long way to go to obtain the same national clout as Providence, Hartford, New Haven, Worcester and Springfield. These are classic New England...

Re: MY TOP 15 NEW ENGLAND CITIES

Hard to believe that it's been 8 years since I started this post. A lot has changed with the Top 15 during this period and I've decided to update my personal rankings as of 2018:

1. BOSTON, 2....

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Nice job putting all that together Cosakita! Only comments are that the rumored Cumberland Avenue tower is supposed to be apartments similar to Back Bay Tower. And the proposed office building at...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Would prefer to have the north end of the building flush with Congress Street to maintain the street wall and maybe the small park could have been placed in between the two new structures. But it...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Just a thought. I think it would be cool to pick a day this spring once the weather warms up to meet interested individuals on this site. Maybe we could all get together on a Saturday around noon...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

The name is kind of lame also, maybe "Verdante at Franklin" might be a better fit. It's kind of diagonal and across four lanes from Lincoln Park. Wonder if they're going to demolish the one story...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

markhb, I think you are correct on your observations. I do remember 2 large (7 and 5 story) brick buildings that kind of blocked Spring Street @ Center. They were connected by an upper level...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Nice overlay work! Plum Street would have cut right down the center of Canal Plaza all the way down to Wharf Street.

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Excellent visualization Max. Middle Street did curve up near the Lobsterman plaza. The Falmouth Hotel was actually located in the street/intersection in front of Canal Plaza. After the Eastland,...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

When they tore down the former Falmouth Hotel and developed Canal Plaza in 1972 was when everything changed. One Monument Square (Casco Bank) was completed in 1970 followed by the Holiday Inn and...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

It's not an issue with the choice of Thames for a name, I just felt it made more sense to continue the street (extension) as Commercial. Also not crazy about Spring/Middle and Temple/Union merger...

Re: Providence developments

It would be sad to see that building demolished and the new replacement tower doesn't appear to be that much taller. Outside of Boston, the Traveler's Tower in Hartford is the only other structure...
