Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

By the time this would finish, a Penthouse in Portland could be nearly 3 million (currently at 1.75 million) and you could buy a sweet house on the coast with that kind of coin.
Even if Portland Pipeline Co. loses this lawsuit, that tank farm near bug Light will clearly still be there for at least a decade.... The 58 Fore St. developers can't have gone through the entire master plan process with the expectation that those tanks would be torn down anytime soon... Or that the oil terminal near bug Light would never see another ship....And besides those tanks are really a minor blotch on the landscape, especially since you can turn your head 20 degrees and get a spectacular view across the harbor towards Peaks Island
