Weekly Roundup: Block 20, Inclusionary Housing, Apartments without Parking, and more

Pearl Block 20

Construction is about to start on Hoyt Street Properties’ Bora-designed Pearl Block 20 Tower

The Oregonian reported that developer Capstone Partners is quietly pitching new vision for Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum, which “would transform the coliseum into a niche music venue and feature mixed-use redevelopment of surface parking lots”,

The DJC wrote that developers concerned about Portland’s proposed Inclusionary Housing program* are putting “forward an alternative proposal that would ramp up adoption of inclusionary housing requirements over several years and offer more generous incentives than the city’s plan”.

According to the Willamette Week  Mayor Hales is proposing to rescind Portland’s ban on apartments without parking, enacted in 2013.

The Oregonian reported Zidell will miss the first deadline for construction in South Waterfront. Under the terms of the 2015 Development Agreement a mixed use project at Zidell Block 1 was due to begin construction by the end of this year, but has yet to move forward.

Newly appointed PDC Director Kimberly Branam has said that the PDC “over-promised and under-delivered” to the poor, the elderly and people of color in North and Northeast Portland.

The November issues of the NW Examiner reported [PDF] that the developers behind the Block 20 tower in the Pearl will use acoustic wrap to reduce noise from the impact-hammer pile driving. The paper also broke the news that the developer behind the redevelopment of the Northrup Market at 1120 NW 21st Ave has walked away from the project.

Focus: Portland’s Tallest Planned Buildings (2016)

Image from the Discussion Draft of the Central City 2035 Plan (Bureau of Planning & Sustainability).

Image from the Discussion Draft of the Central City 2035 Plan, showing a possible development scenario approximating future growth in the Pearl District over 20 years (Bureau of Planning & Sustainability). At least two of the sites shown as potentially developable have current proposals on them.

It is just over a year since Next Portland last did a roundup of the tallest buildings planned or under construction in Portland. At that time, we counted 25 buildings over 100′ in height planned. Today we count 40. Given the length of time it takes to complete a high rise building, many of the buildings on the 2016 were also on the 2015 list. Four buildings are no longer on the list this year, due to having been completed: Block 17, Pearl West, the Aster Tower and Park Avenue West. Seven buildings that were still in the design phase last year are now under construction. No building on last year’s list is known to have been cancelled.

Read on to see our complete list. Where possible, the heights given are the building height as defined in the Portland Zoning Code and published in the Design Commission’s Final Findings. In some cases the heights have been estimated.
