The 98 year old Oregonians Credit Union at 1431 SW Broadway will be razed to make for the 19 story Broadway Tower, reported the Portland Chronicle. The office and hotel building by GBD Architects is going in front of the Design Commission for Design Advice on November 5th.

The Oregonian covered a report by Jones Lang LaSalle that found Portland now has the third lowest office vacancy rate in the nation. In a contrast to previous decades, almost all the new office development “is taking place in the central business district and close-in submarkets” and “‘virtually none’ [is] happening outside the central city.”

Portland plans $67 million more in funding for affordable housing over the next decade, according to The Oregonian. The funding will come from existing Urban Renewal Areas, at the expense of other commitments such as streets and parks.
