Focus: 20 new hotels proposed for Portland

When construction activity first started to return to Portland around 2012 it seemed like all that was being built was apartments. While residential still dominates the construction industry, other sectors of the market have started to return. In the last year there has been been a noticeable increase in the number of hotels proposed in Portland. Next Portland counts at least 20 hotels either proposed, going through Design Advice / Design Review, being reviewed for building permits or under construction. Together these represent over 3000 new rooms, a substantial number for a city that had 25,924 rooms in its metro area as of 2014.

It is unlikely that every single hotel on this list will be built; some of the Early Assistance application may represent property owners performing a feasibility study, and there is always the possibility of a downturn in the economy. Even still, it’s clear that Portland is going to have a substantially larger number of hotels in just a couple years. Click through to see the full list, arranged by number of rooms.

Under Construction in Old Town: The Society Hotel (images)

A long neglected building in Old Town is currently being converted into “affordable boutique hotel” to be known as the Society Hotel. The hotel at NW 3rd & Davis will offer a mix of accommodation in 39 rooms, including a bunk room, private rooms with shared bathrooms, and en-suite rooms. A new rooftop terrace will be created, with 360 degree views. The project also includes a full seismic upgrade, and a number of life safety upgrades to the building. The architectural design of the conversion is being led by Integrate Architecture, with retired architect Bill Hawkins acting as a consultant on historic issues.
