Weekly Roundup: Albina Vision, Lloyd Center Bowlero, Oregon Harbor of Hope, and more

The Albina Vision would include a new waterfront public space, at the concourse level of Veterans Memorial Coliseum. The park would span over N Interstate Avenue and the freight rail line.

The Daily Journal of Commerce wrote about the Albina Vision, an effort by civic leaders to heal the district with intentional development that reverses displacement, with new public spaces, mixed income housing and cultural buildings.

Proposed legislation could eliminate a potential funding source for the Portland Diamond Project, writes the Willamette Week.

A Bowlero-branded bowling alley is proposed for the Lloyd Center, according to the Oregonian.

The Hyatt Regency at the Oregon Convention Center is already attracting attention in Portland — and beyond, according to the Business Tribune.

The Design Commission has approved the Grand Avenue Mixed Use, a 170-unit building in the Central Eastside, writes the Oregonian.

Portland Architecture had a conversation with Holst Architecture principal Dave Otte about the firm’s transition to new leadership.

The Hyatt Place in the Pearl would likely be the city’s tallest building to have no on-site parking, according to Portlanders for Parking Reform.

The Oregonian reports that ground has been broken on the Fourth and Montgomery Building, the downtown classroom, clinic and office building that will house programs of three higher education institutions and Portland’s city government.

The Oregon Harbor of Hope could be open by this summer. Originally planned as private endeavor, the shelter and navigation center will receive $1 million in funding from the Joint Office of Homeless Services, reports the Oregonian.

Focus: The 25 Most Popular Posts of 2018

Block 216

The 35-story Block 216 tower was approved in December. Our post about the project’s Design Advice Request was our most popular post of the year.

Happy New Year.

2018 is the fourth full year Next Portland has been in operation and I’m excited to see what 2019 brings. I’m currently on vacation in Scotland, so new posts will continue to be sporadic until I return next week.

Last year was another busy year for the site. Of the course of the year 141 new posts were published, with nearly 900,000 page views.

The year started with the last of the pre-inclusionary zoning (IZ) projects working their way through the design review process. In February it was reported by the Portland Mercury that Portland’s inclusionary zoning mandate was getting lackluster results, with only 12 qualifying building in the pipeline.

By the end of the year Next Portland had posted about a number of large post-IZ developments that have been approved through design review. These include 815 W Burnside, 1715 SW Salmon, Nomad, the ART Tower Block 216, 1935 N Killingsworth and the Pepsi Blocks. The Portland Housing Bureau now estimates that there are 43 projects subject to inclusionary zoning in the pipeline, with 362 affordable units in projects that have permits or are close to permitting.

Despite the uptick in post-IZ proposals, new design review and building permit applications remain down relative to years ago. At the end of the year the Bureau of Development Services was forced to lay off staff for the first time since the recession, citing “quite sobering” forecasts.

Similarly to 2017, many of the most popular posts were published in previous years, a reflection of the fact that the content Next Portland remains relevant for a long time, as buildings move through construction and into occupancy. One post in the top 25 most popular posts was from 2015; seven posts were from 2016; six posts were from 2017; and eleven were published in 2018.

In reverse order, here are our 25 most popular posts of the year:

Block 216

The Block 216 tower had its first Type III Design Review hearing last Thursday. Cart owners have been told they might need to vacate the 10th & Alder lot as soon as May.

With the surface parking lots currently home to downtown food carts being replaced by developments that include the Moxy Hotel and Block 216advocates have called for a ‘culinary corridor’ along the midtown Park Blocks right of way.

The Southeast Examiner looked at the “phantom laundromat” at 2731 SE Belmont St. A building permit for a 5-story 46 unit apartment building on site is currently ‘approved to issue’, however a demolition permit for the existing structure has expired.

As the first buildings subject to the city’s inclusionary housing ordinance come online, the Daily Journal of Commerce looked at how different developers are complying with the mandate*.

Excess land from MAX construction could become affordable housing, writes the Oregonian.

The Business Tribune looked at the “projects aplenty” at Portland State University, including the Fourth and Montgomery Building and the Neuberger Hall Renovation.

Lonely Planet wrote about the KEX Portland, the “ultra-chic Icelandic hostel” planned at the Burnside Bridgehead.

Portland Monthly wrote about the Garlington Center, which brings health care and housing under one roof.

Fearing rent control, Portland developers are backing Loretta Smith, reports the Oregonian.
