SERA Architects have scheduled a Pre-Application Conference [PDF] with the Bureau of Development Services to discuss the following proposal:
Pre-Application Conference to discuss Type III Historic Resource Review for a new 5-story, 15- room Hostel (Retail Use). The ground- floor will include a small café.
The site is currently a surface parking lot, located in the Alphabet Historic District. It is adjacent to the existing NW Portland Hostel, whose main building is also individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Design Advice documents [PDF] have been filed for a new Restoration Hardware store at NW 23rd Ave & Glisan. The site is currently occupied by surface parking, a Plaid Pantry, and Sammy’s Flowers. The project is located in the Alphabet Historic District.
Design Advice documents [PDF] have been filed with the City for Worldmark by Wyndham vacation rentals, at 221 SW Naito Parkway. The site, located in the Skidmore / Old Town Historic District, is currently a surface car park owned by the Goodman family.
As recently as mid-2013, Downtown Portland’s historic—and long vacant—Hotel Cornelius was under threat of demolition by its then owners, TMT. Fortunately the building was sold to Arthur Mutal, a developer with a growing portfolio of adaptive reuse projects. At the time of the sale they were still considering their options for the property, which included “multifamily housing and creative offices”, as reported in the Oregonian.
