Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Office use would require greater floor heights and would end up being similar to One Canal Plaza at 10 floors which I'd still take!
Tell us more about this conversation

If anything would kill this project, it's the huge influx of hotel rooms going in elsewhere. With everything under construction and in the pipeline, I can't imagine Portland has much demand left for hotel space on the peninsula. I could see a mix of office, condo and event space. I bet a penthouse overlooking the old port and the harbor would sell for a pretty penny.

There are renderings and leasing info posted on various sites for the 7 story office building at 170 Fore St. but nothing has gone to the planning board yet.
