As far as I can tell, Phase 1 would include both of the those buildings as illustrated in that rendering, as written in hand below it is "Illustrates Limits of Phase 1."

It appears there could finally be something happening with the Schwartz Building at the corner of Congress and High Streets, as a bunch of paper went up on the windows today. Or it could just be...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Interesting. According to their preliminary plans it looks like they're proposing a pretty massive transformation:

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.
