"Nice little city?"... you say, and then you put pics of railroad ties, SoPo tank farm, gritty dock and lobster traps. You forgot the scrapyards in Bayside.

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

Thank you! We're quite proud of our little city!

On another note, the city wants to convert space on the Maine State Pier into a public seafood market as well as retail and startup space

Renderings of the proposed Brown Street parking garage, going before the Planning Board this evening. I hope the garage can be a catalyst for further development in the area because it's certainly not going to enliven the streetscape on Brown or Cumberland Streets.

Some news from across the Fore River. Avesta released its first rendering of a 64 unit mixed-use project just off Western Ave. in SoPo



From the PPH article:

Quote:
Avesta Housing submitted a much-anticipated proposal to city planners on Thursday for a 64-unit housing project that would be built in the city’s West End neighborhood and target mostly low-income families.

The five-story West End Apartments would be built at 586 Westbrook St., site of Le Variety and the West End Neighborhood Resource Hub, and would include ground-level commercial space to house both the convenience store and the social service agency, according to Avesta’s application.

Re: Portland, ME - New Construction Continued

No renderings yet, but the developers behind Luminato Condos have begun promoting their next condo development, Verdante, which will be built on the site of the former Portland Co-op building at the corner of Hampshire and Federal Streets. I'm curious what height they're aiming for with this one -- they're advertising "soaring ceilings" and 3-bedroom condos -- which makes me think it will likely be as tall as Luminato.
