Weekly Roundup: Brio Lofts, Jupiter NEXT, Pepsi Blocks, and more

The Pepsi Blocks development will include the retention of the existing mid-century building facing NE Sandy, and the addition of up to 1,000 units. The project is being designed by Mithun Architects for developer Security Properties.

The masterplan for the Pepsi Blocks on NE Sandy went in front the Design Commission for the first time last week. The Daily Journal of Commerce reported that the project was met with a generally positive reception.*

The Oregonian looked at the Brio Lofts at 177 N Failing St and the Zeal Lofts at 3139 N Williams Ave, two micro-apartment developments by the same developer Vibrant Cities, which will also include micro-restaurant space.

The Portland Mercury reported on the Housing Bureau’s plans to buy a site at 5827 NE Prescott St, which will be developed with up to 75 affordable apartment units.

As the Lotus Lotus Cardroom and Cafe gets demolished to make way for the SW 3rd & Salmon tower, the Portland Business Journal took a look at its past — and its future.

Portland Architecture visited the recently completed Jupiter NEXT hotel, with its “matte-black facade that makes use of a familiar material in an unfamiliar way.”

With the recent approval of the Moxy Hotel and plans for Block 216 at SW 9th & Alder announced, the Portland Mercury asked whether rampant development is signaling the death of the food cart pod?
