Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Great work on the list! I'm half tempted to create a new topic for each Portland development the way they do on the Boston forum. A step too far?

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Thanks for the visualization Cosakita, very helpful. As I said the predominant foot traffic pattern still follows the former path of Middle Street, and I would love to see a bit of reengineering at...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

So where did Middle Street make the turn towards Monument Square? Would it have gone through where the Lobsterman Statue is now in front of the Nick? I'm trying to picture it.
