Weekly Roundup: Sandy Blvd, Sky3, St Francis Park Apartments, and more

St Francis Park Apartments

The recently completed St Francis Park Apartments.

With a potential large development planned at the Pepsi bottling facility at 2505 NE Pacific, the DJC asked if it is Sandy Boulevard’s moment?*

The Willamette Week reported that “one of the largest and most popular food cart pods in Portland”, located at 2880 SE Division St, is closing to become apartments.

The Portland Tribune looked at the push by homeless advocates to ensure affordable housing developments include Permanent Supportive Housing units, such as those at the recently completed St Francis Park Apartments.

According to the Oregonian, Amazon will be opening a pickup location near PSU in the ground floor of the recently completed Sky3 tower.

The Willamette Week reported that critics are blasting a “plan to divert money earmarked for the black community to help a health care giant” at N Williams and Knott.

According to the Portland Business Journal “no fewer than 27 hotels have either opened since 2015 or are under construction or planned for the metro region”. The paper published a gallery of the some of the hotel projects that are adding thousands of rooms to Portland.

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