Weekly Roundup: Grant High School, Centennial Mills, 1205 SE Morrison, and more

Conceptual diagram showing how much development would be allowed under a full site redevelopment of the Centennial Mills site (image: GBD Architects). The flour mill would remain and be converted to creative office space, while the rest of the site would likely be used for residential and retail uses, plus an expansion of the Willamette Greenway.

The Willamette Week reported that Portland could be getting a major new music venue at 2034 NW 27th Ave. With a capacity for 3,000 concert goers it would be of a similar size to the Schnitzer Concert Hall or the Keller Auditorium.

According to the Portland Mercury nearly 6,000 residential units were submitted for city review in the past two months—ensuring that they wont be subject to the newly enacted inclusionary zoning rules.

The Oregonian wrote about how affordable housing developers are taking a hit from Trump tax cut speculation.

The DJC reported that the Portland Development Commission is moving towards a full-site redevelopment of the Centennial Mills*, which would not include the return of the Mounted Patrol unit to the site.

The Morrison Street Bar & Grill at 1205 SE Morrison St will be demolished to make way for four-story, 39-unit apartment complex, reported the Portland Chronicle.

The developers behind 1320 Broadway, formerly home to the Oregonian, are set to make a substantial return on their investment, according to the Portland Business Journal.

The developers behind the renovation and expansion of the Grove Hotel have sued to evict Right 2 Dream Too homeless camp across the street, reports the Oregonian.

Portland Shoupistas argued that parking is often over supplied at Transit Oriented Developments.

The Willamette Week posted that with the Fair-Haired Dumbbell under construction Portland finally has architecture worth arguing about.

The DJC published photos of the new spaces now open at Roosevelt High School.

*This article will be unlocked for the rest of this week. After this week it will only be viewable by DJC subscribers.
