Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Was in town a couple of days ago and took a couple of good pics of the East End waterfront construction. Who can I email those to for posting?

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

If they put a rooftop bar enclosed in all glass that would be cool. It shouldn't effect the height as the two opposite mechanical rooms are at least two stories. (Bummed the new AC Marriott doesn't...

When the baby boomers all die off, you will see 20 story buildings.

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

So, it's been three weeks past the time he said he would make that announcement. That guy has no sense of public relations, unlike Jim Brady, who was "forced" out of the project. Sorry to say, this...

Re: Jetport

And if that one flight is cancelled, or you miss it, the options pale in comparison to what Boston has.

Re: Jetport

The primary reason Manchester had more passengers was because of discount carrier, Southwest (before it was in Portland). It was such an irritant using that airport if living in the Portland area...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Maine, and especially Portland, is becoming a preeminent place to spend a vacation in the U.S. I constantly read reviews, comments from people visiting Portland and nearly all remark how beautiful it...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

A massive, busy oil cargo and pipeline terminus with 70 foot high "venting" towers will not be an appealing sight to today's -- and especially tomorrow's -- consumers. That's the reason for the Clear...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Ohhhh. Still stands with the Portland Company site though. That will change from original plans, substantially, if it gets built at all.

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

I heard Jim Brady, visionary developer of the Press Hotel, is no longer involved in this, so, scrap all those cool arch plans that have been released. Now, it's probably something ordinary, taller,...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

I guess Diane Russell longs for the other sights in Portland, the ones that reinforce its look and feel, such as empty lots with trash and scrap metal in Bayside, or the dilapidated houses on Munjoy...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Noticed they snuck a 5th floor on the left front part of the WEX building. Nice. And in back, near the end, another small section -- a fourth floor. Maybe cafeteria area that opens up to the roof top...

Re: MY TOP 15 NEW ENGLAND CITIES

I have spent at least ninety percent of my time over the last 20 years in either L.A. or New York City, of which has given me a rather "best of" of experience. I can assure you on this list the only...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Has the 7 story office building across from the parking garage started its foundation? The reason I ask is I noticed leasing info for this online and it stated it has broken ground. Perhaps some of...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Nice. It's replacing a makeshift, somewhat ramshackle structure. It's nearly cresting the hill too, so the top floor views will be good.

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

The existing Holiday Inn could be connected instead. It would need a renovation though. The Residence Marriot Inn next to the future WEX building did that. Two months ago it finished a $2 million...

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

The logical place for convention space are the expansive parking lots next to Brian Boru. That way, a pedestrian bridge can be built connecting to the civic center for even more space, etc. It's also...

Yes, do agree they could make the exterior foot traffic entries a bit more dynamic. The back with the motorcourt type feel makes me think of the old designed Best Western, 645 Congress, which became...
